You approach a crosswalk and see that a pedestrian with a guide dog is trying to cross the street. What should you do?

Correct answer

  • Wait until the pedestrian crosses the street.
  • Stop and turn off your engine.
  • Beep your horn to let the pedestrian know it is safe to cross.

Explanation

Blind pedestrians have the absolute right-of-way. If a blind pedestrian is trying to cross the street, you must yield to the pedestrian, stopping if necessary. Don't sound your horn near a blind pedestrian; it could startle the pedestrian or mask vital audible cues that the blind pedestrian relies on.
