Description about the painting:

Day 19, June 19th, painting of the series '30 Days in June Project.'

Painting Description:
Anyone who has a disability that effects one of the senses always has the other senses heightened. Deaf truckers, because they have to rely on sight rather than sound are much more observant and aware of their surroundings. Speech does not have anything to do with driving since Deaf truckers passed the written tests. why couldn't they use their communication through writing with DOT officials? Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) wants the law for the Deaf truckers to have 40 db or better to drive the truck. The Deaf truckers disagree with the law.
