Turkmenistan women banned to drive cars
The Turkmenistan government imposed a total ban on women drivers, with or without driver's licenses. The police started detaining female drivers since 1 January and towed numerous vehicles to their parking lot as a warning for all female drivers in the country not to attempt to drive again.
According to various central Asian media, the patrol police said that "the Minister of Interior Affairs earlier appealed to the President and told that most of the rod accidents occur due to the women drivers or with participation of women drivers. The head of state, according to the source, ordered to resolve this issue."
Earlier reports said Turkmenistan imposed a total ban on exploitation of the black vehicles in the country.
