I am Garry Adams, [ ... ]. I write this via the computer of a friend, that I may
give my opinion on Audible Pedestrian Signals.
You should know that there are two kinds of blind persons. One cries: "Take care
of me; I am helpless because of my blindness." The second says: "My blindness is
simply an inconvenience and independence is my goal." I vote with the latter.
Audible Pedestrian Signals should not be mandated unless there is CLEAR and
urgent statistical support. The pity sympathy approach is a failed policy.
