Deafness and driving licenses? Part 2 (Teacher: Michael)

A hearing-aid does not clarify sound as much as it may increase volume, and this can be distraction to driver, especially in town areas. hearing-aid is not comparable with spectacles. latter can improve vision to such extent that it becomes normal. hearing-aid does not make hearing perfect. There have been suggestions that certificate of sound hearing should be incorporated in every application for driving licence.

In view of statistics, however, this would seem unreasonable. We all suffer at times from other driver who thinks we must be deaf, just because we don't do exactly what he wants us to do. He shows this by hooting and bad manners. There is reason to believe that driver with poorer hearing is spared some of this sort of annoyance, as well as distraction of talkative passenger.

The only thing that may possibly suffer little as result of disability is perhaps, gearbox! To sum up, I would maintain that deaf driver is as safe as rest of us and I would never support any legislation against him.
