Poorly veiled women can have their cars impounded in Iran

Female drivers could also have their cars impounded if they are caught driving without their heads covered.

On Wednesday, General Teymour Hosseini, the head of Tehran’s traffic police, said female drivers will have their vehicles seized in accordance with the law, if they are caught driving with their veils off or if they are poorly veiled.

Not only that, but any woman whose car is seized will need to go and get a court order to get it back.

Back in 2014, a Facebook page popped up, and the page was a launch and there were a number of women shown, and none of them were wearing veils.

Maryam Namazie, a political activist, said that one of the first acts of the regime was to impose veiling and to suppress a huge protest in 1979 to mark International Women’s Day, which falls on March 8.

The activist added that the veil rule has been imposed on by people via force, which includes morality police harassing women and girls, as well as with fines and imprisonment.

Iran’s judiciary chief, Ayatollah Sadegh Larijani, said that some streets in Tehran resemble fashion salons. He questioned whether “tolerance” is the reason for this.
