Driving While Deaf
I am completely in the -I have no idea- when it comes to Deafness and Driving.
A blog article was just posted in Italy discussing the fact that an 82 year old Deaf man had a car accident, and they proposed adding an Audiometric Exam to the Driving Test.
Personally, I am not convinced the accident occurred due to deafness. And they could just as well prohibit radio use in cars considering how many hearing drivers blast their radios while driving.
Just out of curiosity, how does it work? Jordan would go to the DMV, take his theory and practical and snap his picture-done deal? Or do you need to write something on the license.
FYI, in Italy, Deaf individuals can buy a car at 4% state tax instead of 20% in Italy, anything like that in the USA?
Thank you for any and all replies...
