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.
