Driver's Ed

Like I've mentioned before, I'm taking Driver's Ed this summer. I can't say that I've learned much of anything, but if it's what I have to do to get my permit when I turn 15, it's what I will do!

The other day we were supposed to be reading a chapter over the senses you need for driving. I came across this little paragraph:

It says, "Deaf drivers know that they must see what they cannot hear. They compensate by using their eyes more than drivers who are not deaf. In general, the driving records of deaf drivers are among the best."

I'm not sure how true that is, considering I broke my dad's car driving just driving it around the parking lot, but I digress...

After we finished reading, the teacher decided to review a little bit over what we just read. She went down the list of senses and asked if we needed them for driving. (see, I told you! This class is pointless!)

"Do you need to be able to hear to drive?"

I shook my head, but was surprised to hear a resounding "YES!" from every other student in the class. Um, frightening? The teacher did set them straight, but can they not read?!

Some people...


  1. Wow. People never cease to amaze me...
    And haha I was squinting to read the paragraph in the fuzzy picture and then discovered you wrote what it says beneath it. Silly me!

  2. I am amazed daily! I can totally picture you squinting and tilting your head at the screen :P
