Default No more big ones for expats in Jeddah unless you have a big one

JEDDAH: Residents with less than five members in the family will not be allowed to own a vehicle with seven seats or more, the General Directorate of Traffic has said.
The directorate has sent a circular to all its departments, saying that registration or ownership of such vehicles by expatriates should be rejected if the condition is not met,

Pondering this logically is why you can't think of a logical answer

Is anything logical in Jeddah?? The place on earth I know that seems to be able to only function and operate in complete chaos...

Great plan. Restrict the 'safer' drivers to smaller cars so the others can bowl around in trucks with 6 kids bouncing around not strapped in.

I understand that it's to stop single men getting up to mischief with other... single men (and maybe the occasional woman) - That pleasure has been reserved only for married men with large families.

I made sweet love to my college mrs in my Citroen C2. That was pretty cramped. Ended up giving her a gentle warming of her arse on the bonnet too....on her parent's driveway...whilst they were in.

****. Those were the days.
