A dim view of pedestrian safety: Raising awareness of the needs of vision-impaired pedestrians.

Maplesden, C

Pedestrian Safety


This article will explain the travel skills used by vision impaired pedestrians. It is based on my personal experience working and walking alongside people who are blind or have low vision. My objective is to raise the awareness of other professionals, whose work roles or personal interests provide the opportunity to act on suggestions to improve the safety of all pedestrians, particularly those with a disability.
