signing and driving

2006-09-15 16:27:33.732241+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

One of the things I love about the Tandem@Hobbes[Wiki] mailing list is that ya can't make any assumptions about the other participants. It's one of the places where I've seen practical discussions about web site accessibility (a number of blind stokers), and in a recent discussion about the usefulness of mirrors on bicycles, and whether or not they'd let you see approaching traffic before you could hear it, Sanjay Gulati said:

Research indicates that deaf people actually have a lower rate of car accidents than hearing people, presumably due to being more careful and being more visually aware. (Particularly surprising given how hard it is to sign and drive at the same time!)

And I thought "when video camera phones become widespread, we are so screwed."

I'm guessing that Californians are different from Georgians (Atlanta) and more to the point New Yorkers (Neyawkahs) who have absolutely no problem signing and driving. ,.|.. (s that a new emoticon?) ;<)
