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


A pedestrian who is carrying a white cane or using a guide dog is blind or visually impaired. Always yield the right-of-way to such a pedestrian. The Tennessee Comprehensive Driver License Manual recommends that you stop at least ten feet away from him or her. Don't sound your horn because it might startle the pedestrian or drown out audible cues that the pedestrian relies on to navigate. [Right-of-Way Procedures, Intersections, B-4.
