I heard this morning that a blind person I know was hit by a car recently. Was not their fault and no one was hurt. it made me stop and think as I traveled the sidewalks and streets this morning. I usually think of traffic as helpful in that its movement allows me to read traffic lights. For example, if there is no audible signal and I arrive at an intersection, I listen for cars moving the way I wish to move. Then I know it is safe to cross. I learned this from a young age and so was not too afraid of traffic. It helped me get around. I have had close calls with bad drivers though which always shakes you up. So glad no one was hurt and thanks to the paramedics for checking out the guide dog and putting the guide dog in the ambulance too.
