White Cane Safety

Descriptive Transcript: White Cane Safety

Blind man on camera: I take a walk of faith every time, I step off that curb. It’s only 50 feet, but I tell you, it feels like 50 miles. I’ve had so many near-misses, I’ve lost count. The worst thing, a blind man there in the crosswalk with no where to go.

Voice Over: Be aware when you’re behind the wheel. Look for the white cane. And stop your car fifteen feet away from a blind person in the roadway. That’s the law.

Man: Remember, this cane is no match for this (tires screeching, car horn blaring - a car grill zooming to the camera).
