Hearing Tips for Safer Driving in North Palm Beach, Florida

Hearing Tips for Safer Driving

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.
