THE TOTALLY DEAF DRIVER IN CALIFORNIA

RESULTS ARE PRESENTED OF STUDIES OF TOTALLY DEAF DRIVERS IN CALIFORNIA IN WHICH IT WAS FOUND THAT THERE ARE NO SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES IN ACCIDENT OCCURRENCES BETWEEN DEAF AND NON-DEAF FEMALES, WHEREAS DEAF MALE DRIVERS EXPERIENCED SIGNIFICANTLY MORE ACCIDENTS THAN THE NON-DEAF. TWO LARGE SAMPLES OF DEAF AND NON-DEAF DRIVERS WERE MATCHED ON FIVE VARIABLES-AGE, ANNUAL MILEAGE, OCCUPATION, SEX, AND AREA OF RESIDENCE. A NUMBER OF QUESTIONS HAVE BEEN LEFT UNRESOLVED BY THIS STUDY AND ADDITIONAL RESEARCH MAY INDICATE THE NEED FOR FURTHER TRAINING OF SOME DEAF DRIVERS.
