Since when has there been a rash of more blind people being hit by electric cars.... oh wait.... The Driver has to pass a drivers test to look out for pedestrians crossing streets. There is even a section on what to do when you see a person with a walking stick...SLOW DOWN...and then see what they are going to do.
Enough of the madness. There are enough driver laws about being aware of your surroundings. Driving is not a right as some think it is. It is a Privilege and if you don't follow the rules (Speeding..etc.) that will be taken away.
