The Effectiveness of Deaf-Blind Pedestrians Warning Signage on Drivers’ Behaviour


People with disabilities and their advocates have sometimes requested that special warning signage be posted in areas to help make street crossings safer. Related research has found these signs ineffective but they continue to be installed. The current research examined whether or not posted signage indicating the presence of people who are deaf-blind would cause drivers to yield more frequently for pedestrians with a mobility cane. The results can inform O&M practices and professionals working on behalf of people with disabilities.
