emang kenapa nyetir pakai niqab? soale gw ngga pernah pakai chador sambil nyetir, walaupun kalau musim dingin pakai jaket berlapis-lapis dan penutup kepala juga. apa mengurangi visibility?
selama mematuhi kalau diperlukan memperlihatkan wajah sesuai aturan ya biarin aja, entah pakai niqab, atau cuma pakai bikini :-) kalau pengemudi lain jadi tolah-toleh ya itu salahnya, lha wong nyetir kok lirak-lirik ke sana kemari ....
