Women cut road, protest unfair male drivers in Istanbul
ISTANBULWomen drivers on a road linking the Bosphorus Bridge to Üsküdar in Istanbul staged a demonstration on June 5 to protest male drivers who attempted to barge unfairly to the front of the line.
The women drivers cut the road in front of the male drivers with their cars, with many others on the road supporting the protesters.
Two women stepped out of their cars after realizing that male drivers were attempting to unfairly budge in front of other, stopping them. Other drivers, including male ones, waiting for the women to end their protests honked their horns in a show of support.
Drivers in Turkey routinely attempt to barge to the front of the line rather than wait their turn.
