It's Deaf Unawareness Week, just when you thought you know it all, but there may be something that we may be unaware of, are we missing the trends in our Deaf culture? Take for instance, the decline in the numbers of Deaf drivers on the roads, no, we didn't return to the stone age when we were forbidden to drive. We fought hard to remove those discriminatory laws of the books, to prove ourselves to insurance industries that we are safe drivers, often better than our hearing counterparts. Well, those days are gone, the reason that the majority of us Deaf drivers don't drive is because of the lack of affordable insurance, our premiums skyrocketed after a significant increase of accidents of us Deaf texting while driving. Safe drivers, it isn't so anymore. Technology improves our lives and yet shorten our lifespan.
