This is not the first time I have ever seen a Colorado deaf man work for Company on a 18 wheeles Trucker.. I asked a deaf man " How Do you Hear Or Recall When Someone Call You On CB Radio Station?" He said, Mostly Company requires by Law if you are H.O.H , and have your hearing- aid to be ability driving a trucker on a road trip.. The Company will know and texting you instead of using a CB Radio. " To Me"...
I have been living California for nine years and they required every employee to have a certification before you become a real truck drivers and using their CB Radio to contact a routine a truckers.
I find hard to believe deaf men in the USA are ability to drive a 18 wheeler trucker and without in use of CB Radio to contact the other truckers and even though without their certification.. I must see their proud of successful without discrimation on the jobs....COOL!

Tell Me... What Do You think a deaf Man in the USA can work on a Travel 18 wheeles trucker routine without using contact CB Radio?

I drove OTR (Over the road) for two years before my late wife became sick. I loved it! I am HOH and very seldom used my CB. The language is so bad it offends former sailors. I enjoyed listening to Books on Tape. As a solo driver I was reading a book a day on the road. It is better than TV because you are alert and driving while listening to the story. Religious music and listening to spiritual messages was very rewarding. You become a better driver and learn to control your thoughts.

other way I know most trucking companies provide email devices between drivers & their companies as i'm not trucker but rode w/friend. I'm HOH used to drive 3 type of garbage trucks in my 11 yrs career. It was difficult listening on communication radio...not CB.
I wish for trucking career better than garbage job.
