Driving Deaf

Should deaf people be allowed to get driver's licenses?

I bet being born deaf and inheriting deafness affects you very differently. People born deaf probably could be amazing drivers, because their vision is probably much more reactive than mine. But, if I went deaf tomorrow, I'd probably start running over pedestrians and getting run down by ambulances pretty quick.

So, what do we do? Just see if they can pass the regular test? That'd probably be much less divisive than my other driving test idea.

you LISTEN for pedestrians? most of the time all I can hear is my music...doesn't affect my driving.

Top Songs of 2020

2020 was a particularly great year for new music. Reminder: Eric likes his music Xanax-style. Mostly chill. Especially necessary during 2020...
