Oh tell that to me.......
I consider myself more an average driver than a good driver.
But since then in the last 8 years I hadn't had a ticket. I managed to get thru 12 years up to now without a wreck.
Your mileage may vary on Deafie drivers and hearie drivers. It is just that there is "the law of chances" but the odds are much in our favor when it comes to being more safe drivers because we use our eyes a lot and concentrate on what is out there on the road.
But what pisses me off is drivers using cell phones and not keeping their eyes on the road! I was almost hit by an idiot using a cell phone some time ago. But good thing I was able to use defensive driving to avoid being t-boned. Chalk it up to heavy use of the video games "Gran Turismo 3 A-Spec" and "Project Gotham Racing 2" since it helped me develop much hand-foot-eye coordination that is really necessary for real-life situations on the road.
Also don't forget ROAD RAGE! I had more than my share of the middle finger at other drivers when they pull idiotic stunts in traffic and almost wrecks me!
