A pedestrian with a white cane enters the road ahead. What should you do?

A Yield to the pedestrian.

A pedestrian who is carrying a white cane or accompanied by a guide dog is very likely blind or sight impaired. You must always yield to blind pedestrians. Do not sound your horn or rev your engine around a blind pedestrian; it could startle the pedestrian or mask vital audible cues that the blind pedestrian relies on.
