What are the 26 countries that don't allow deaf people to drive a car?
I was searching on Google to ask what are the 26 countries that banned deaf people to drive and I can't find what am I looking for. So anyone who could name the 26 countries that have that law?

I would hope/assume they are unable to drive in ant country... for several safety reasons. They can't hear emergency vehicles (firetrucks, cops and ambulances... they could cause a delay in their arrival to the scene and cause death or injury that could have been avoided otherwise). They can't hear horns from fellow drivers and that could also cause issues/accidents/loss/injury.
It's common sense. But who knows what can happen when political correctness goes mad!
