Sure, but I imagine the vast majority on here allows it.

I'm just curious about those who don't.

I want to take a moment to applaud AJK on the ease at which he created the perfect popcorn thread. Well done.

And what about all the other women in tanach who weren't exactly like that? Are they not role models for today's frum women?
Why does a woman driving mean she won't be at home like sarah imeinu?

No no, you don't understand, once they start driving, they start doing all sorts of other things that they shouldn't be doing.

Members have messaged me that they have what to say on these topics, but are scared to comment in case others know who they are and wouldn't like what they are reading.

I'd assume that applies here as well.

Perhaps they can pm you (or me or anyone else) their comments to be posted anonymously?

In my community its allowed, actually my sisters HS (Lkwd-15 yrs ago) actually promoted it--less bitul torah if you can just drive your kid to the Dr without interrupting your husbands schedule.

In general yeshivish promote it.

Those who disapprove it view it like a lady bike riding or rollerblading in public, at least thats how I understand it from the outside.

Most yeshivish would frown upon women bike riding or roller blading on the streets. Perhaps in a park or a dedicated area would be better.   

IMO.

My cousin is a 5th grade Rebbe in a boys  Yeshiva and was told he had to stop riding his bike to school.

Ah. I love religion.

Sara Imenu?
Also that idea isn't a foreign concept to the non Jewish world as well. Once upon a time that's how things were.

  Iím not saying I agree to the concept of woman not driving but I hear it.

..and what exactly do you "hear" about it?

What's the legitimate concern such people hope to mitigate?
