  • Boy, there are sure a bunch of idiots answering questions on this site. Of course deaf people can drive cars.

    From page 75 of the California Drivers Handbook, located at

    http://www.dmv.ca.gov/pubs/dl600.pdf

    HEARING

    Hearing is more important to

    driving than many people realize.

    The sound of horns, a siren, or

    screeching tires can warn you of

    danger. Sometimes you can hear a

    car but you cannot see it, especially

    if it is in your blind spots.

    Even people with good hearing

    cannot hear well if the radio, CD, or

    tape deck is blaring. While driving,

    do not wear a headset or earplugs

    in both ears.

    Hearing problems, like bad eyesight,

    can come on so slowly that

    you do not notice them. Drivers

    who know they are deaf or hearing-

    impaired can adjust. They can

    learn to rely more on their seeing

    habits.

    Of course deaf people can drive!

    Usually it goes by an individual basis, but most deaf people are permitted to drive. The driving record for deaf people is actually statistically better than the record for people who can hear!

    They can in Ohio. I knew someone who did. They just have to be extra-vigilant, I'd think...such as constantly looking in the rearview mirror in case there's an ambulance.
