Rand Corporation report says self-driving cars need more testing

Self-driving cars have a while to go before they can be deemed road-ready according to a report from the Rand Corporation. Many drivers in Kentucky would agree, especially when they consider the history of these vehicles. In May 2016, one man died when his Tesla, which was on Autopilot, crashed into a truck. In March 2018, a self-driving Uber vehicle fatally struck a pedestrian in Arizona.

Hearing loss could result in disability benefits

If an individual in Kentucky has experienced hearing loss, they may be able to apply for Social Security disability benefits. An examiner will need to determine if the applicant has sufficiently low hearing sensitivity and speech discrimination scores. If possible, that determination will be made using medical evidence provided by an applicant. If no evidence is provided, it will likely be necessary for the individual to take part in an audiometric consultative examination.
