Indiana Code 16-32-3-3
(A) A person who is not totally blind who:
(1) approaches a totally or partially blind pedestrian carrying a cane predominantly white or metallic in color, with or without a red tip, or using a guide dog; and
(2) fails to take all necessary precautions to avoid injury to the blind pedestrian;
commits a Class C infraction.
A new awareness program was started by Nancy Ake because of a near miss
accident of her own. State law requires all
vehicles must come to a complete stop when any pedestrian with a white cane or
guide dog approaches a crossing. Nancy
has worked with Senator Tom Wyss to help get the word out to protect all
visually impaired pedestrians.
