    Near my house on the main road there is a large sign on the pathway that says: Blind People Cross Here....


    ....WTF? blind people cant see the bloody sign...whats that all about... around the corner further up on another main road is a smaller one...and it is like the most unsafe place to cross to..there arent even streetlights

    We are not kidding there is a federal law requiring drive through atms to have braille keypads.

    I think it is so that we watch for them rather than that they read it...lol

    Here we have traffic lights that beep so that those who are blind can tell when it is safe to cross...:)
