Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v105 n12 p760-769 Dec 2011
Pedestrians with visual impairments need to cross streets where traffic signals and traffic signage are not present. This study examined the influences of several interventions, including a pedestrian's use of a mobility cane, on the behavior of drivers when they were expected to yield to a pedestrian crossing at an uncontrolled crossing. (Contains 5 tables and 2 figures.)
