I'd like to hear your experiences about driving deaf. I'll add a couple of my own to get the ball rolling.

A few years ago I was driving with a car full of rowdy teenagers; laughing, joking, talking all together and so on (although I couldn�t hear them!) My son tapped me on the shoulder. I was driving a very busy road in Sydney in peak hour traffic trying to concentrate so I told him to stop. But he kept tapping. After a few times I looked in the rear vision mirror to tell him off and saw the flashing lights of an ambulance. I had been holding it up because I could not hear and he�d been trying to tell me.
