My Traffic Sign

On Friday, I got a call and was told that my sign was being put up today. Two months ago I wrote to my town and ask them to please put up a sign stating that I am deaf. My Block is the first block off the parkway and this street is always busy and not even that everyone speeds like crazy! A few weeks ago before I got my hearing aids, I was in the street crossing to go home someone swirved around me in the street and scared the hell out of me. I did look both ways as I was crossing, I dont know who the person was but all I know I was terrified. Between my seziures when Im in and out of attacks during the day this can also be dangerous. I am so glad that I got two signs. They put one up by the end of my block before you turn Left. Then they also put one in front of my house on the phone pole really high. I am glad they put the signs up for me!!! I hope this makes people more aware to " SLOW DOWN".
