Siren song

One of the tired arguments against letting Deaf people drive is that they wouldn’t be able to hear ambulances, fire truck, or other siren-emitting vehicles, which we think is probably more of an argument against the folks who drive around with the local alternative rock station cranked to 11 on their amplifiers. Both groups are likely to respond to the types of sirens being installed in ambulances across Oklahoma, which emit not only the traditional squeal but also a very low frequency tone that will make any car in the area vibrate.
