Q:

Are deaf people allowed to drive?

A:

Deaf people can drive, but they may need to install a few adaptive modifications in their vehicles to be able to drive safely. Many deaf drivers utilize special devices to alert them when fire trucks or ambulances are near them.

The special devices used to alert drivers about nearby emergency vehicles are programmed to shine different light patterns for different emergency vehicles. Some deaf drivers also utilize special panoramic mirrors so they can see everything that is around and behind their vehicles. These mirrors allow deaf drivers to have a larger field of vision and to be aware while they are driving.
