Holly, I was just enjoying the webboard and noticed your question about a telecon system. I do not use one but have known people who have. It is actually considered a Galilean telescopic system, but instead of having the telescope mounted to or in the carrier lens it uses a high concave dioptic power contact lens and a wafer of the appropriate convex power cemented to the carrier (spectacle) lens of a pair of glasses. I can not speak for its effectiveness. As far as getting the driving laws changed you could start a grass roots group of interested individuals and gather support from some low vision specialists and state congressmen. It may take some hard work, but I've seen it happen in Virginia, Georgia and Ohio and other states. Go for it! You are your best advocate. There is great info on this website to assist you in making your statement.
