Common theory questions

What does it mean when a visually impaired person is near a road and pointing their stick diagonally forward?

For blind and visually impaired people it can be difficult and unpleasant to be out in traffic. Always assume that a person with a white stick or guide dog is visually impaired and should be given extra consideration as well as time.

Visually impaired people can communicate their intentions with their stick. Pay attention to how they use it:

  • The stick is pointed straight down – the person is waiting and listening.
  • The stick is pointed diagonally forward – the person intends to cross the road or continue walking.
