Should deaf peopke be allowed to drive automobiles?

 If we have vision problems a person either has to correct the vision to certain measures, but how does a deaf person compensate for not hearing an oncoming car ir train whistle?

I will tell you that once of a time deaf were not allowed to drive. 

Update:

Should deaf peopke be allowed to drive a vehicle?

    This isn't the first time such an argument has been made, but when it comes down to following the traffic laws, hearing is not required to follow them.  The deaf need to take extra caution, but statistically don't put other drivers more at risk.

    Deaf people have better driving records and on the whole, live longer.  So yes, they "should drive."

    All teenagers are deaf in a car, they have the music on full.

    In the winter we close the windows and have the heater on.

    We don't need hearing to drive a car.
