Here are some hearing tips for our older Florida Drivers from “Florida GrandDriver”
By age 65, hearing loss occurs to 39% of people. High sounds go first, making sirens difficult to hear. Background noises can significantly distort sound and interfere with your driving. A turn signal left on because you don’t hear it can cause a crash.
- Have your hearing checked annually.
- Turn off the radio.
- Check exhaust pipes and have bad ones replaced before they become noisy.
- Keep air conditioner or heater fan on the lowest setting to reduce background noise.
- You can purchase a device that amplifies the sound of your turn signals.
