Hearing loss: How do you identify yourself to others?

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.

@tulip you are lucky. I was arrested because they didn't believe my husband or myself that I couldn't walk a straight line in the middle of the night with a big flashlight in my eyes. They were pretty apologetic after taking me in and talking to me in a quiet well-lighted room. The fact that it was Christmas Eve made it worse. A warning is good!
