Henry and Sandy Bloomberg
September 9, 2002
My husband is totally blind and I am visually
impaired. We know personally how important audible warnings and crossings are.
We have both been almost killed trying to cross a street. Another thing that
is needed desperately is driver awareness program in the schools. A lot of
people don't even recognize what a white cane means. Please advocate this
means of saving lives. It doesn't discriminate anymore than closed captioning
discriminates against blind people. Anything that helps any person stay alive
is worth while. Thank you, for your attention.
