Summary

Primarily intended for the deaf or hard of hearing driver, this booklet contains many tips useful to all drivers. It is divided into two sections: Signs of Car Trouble and What to Do, and Safe Driving Tips and Special Situations. The rationale for section 1 is that a hearing driver can often tell that his car is not running properly or that some part is worn out or broken by the sounds it makes. Topics covered in this section tell the deaf or severely hard of hearing driver how to find out many of the same things through sight and vibrations. Topics include the following: Inspecting the car, lights on the instrument panel, unusual vibrations that can mean trouble, and using the sense of smell. Section 2 is primarily intended for the young deaf driver, whether taking a driver education course or recently licensed with little or no experience in handling different driving situations. Topics discussed in this section include general driving tips, rules of the road, accidents and experiences, and special tips (first aid supplies, winter driving). (TA)
