The Missouri Highway Patrol and others have put on a demonstration near Macon of a drunk-driving traffic crash involving deaf people. Dave Fleming, the Director of the State Office of Alcohol and Drug Abuse says deaf people are at risk from drunk drivers, just like everybody else. Interpreters provided a running dialogue for deaf students on the scene. But police and paramedics did not have any interpreters. That was done so they could get experience dealing with deaf accident victims.
