One wonders if this woman could have survived , if she could see better. The burka is not really safe in a number of situations. Wonder if her family will sue the track now.

A Muslim woman has died after her burkha became caught in a go-kart she was driving
A young Muslim woman had died after her burkha became snagged in a go-kart.
The 24-year-old woman, who has not yet been named, died a terrifying death today when a fluttering part of her burkha became caught in the wheels of a go-kart she was driving near the town of Port Stephens, north of Sydney.
The Muslim clothing the woman was wearing flew back as she sped around the track and part of it became entangled in the go-kart's wheels.
