@lunameow14 You are lucky because the KCDHH is an excellent organization. Speaking of driving, have you ever been stopped or in an accident and need to communicate with law enforcement or other drivers? What methods do you use to handle the situation? Do you have an "I am Deaf" or "I have Hearing Loss" sign on your visor to let them know?

No, my husband and I want to take training safety driver for elders so we can get discount for our car insurance.

One time, back when I had HA"s and they were not giving me a lot of benefit, I was pulled over for going 40 in a 30. I had no idea what the speed limit was, it was a 4 lane road. The police officer said something that I did not understand at first and then followed up with "from the look on your face, I can tell you didn't know". He asked me if I knew what the speed limit was on the road. The look on my face was because I didn't understand what he was saying :). I got off with a warning.
