White Cane Safety Day

Published at 3:14 p.m. on October 15, 2013 | Modified at 3:14 p.m. on October 15, 2013

Guide dogs lead the way as people cross Manatee Avenue West in downtown Bradenton on Tuesday during White Cane Safety Day. The national event is meant to bring awareness to motorists to watch out for visually impaired people using any type of device, be it a dog, cane, other means, to travel along the roadways. Representatives from Southeastern Guide Dogs, Division of Blind Services, Manatee Council for the Blind, Lions Club and the Lighthouse of Manasota joined in the walk from the Manatee Courthouse to Bradenton City Hall where a proclamation was read.

Bradenton Herald is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
