emang kenapa nyetir pakai niqab?
soale gw ngga pernah pakai chador sambil nyetir,
walaupun kalau musim dingin pakai jaket berlapis-lapis dan penutup kepala
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 ....
