The California DMV Driver Handbook
PEDESTRIANS WHO ARE BLIND
using guide dogs or white canes with or without
a red tip must be given the right-of-way at all
times. These pedestrians are partially or totally
blind so be especially careful when turning corners
or backing up.
Here are some suggestion for helping pedestrians who are blind:
- Dont stop your car more than five feet
from the crosswalk. The blind pedestrian uses
the sound of your engine as a guide, so pull right
up to the crosswalk to allow the person to hear you.
- Dont give the blind pedestrian verbal directions.
The blind pedestrian listens to all traffic sounds
before deciding to cross the street.
- Dont wait too long for the blind pedestrian
to cross the street. If the person takes a step
back and pulls in his or her cane, thats a definite
sign the driver should go.
- Dont turn right on red without looking
first. Look for any pedestrian or other traffic
first before starting your turn.
- Stop at all crosswalks where pedestrians are
- Dont stop in the middle of a crosswalk.
This forces the blind pedestrian to go around your
car and into traffic outside of the crosswalk.
- Dont block any sidewalk.
- Dont honk at a blind person. The blind
person has no idea who you are honking at and may
be scared by the noise.
workers warn you of their presence by using orange
signs, equipment, flags, and reflective vests. Its
up to you to ensure both your own and the workers
safety by driving slowly through construction zones.
THE HIGHWAY WORKERS LIFE IS IN YOUR HANDS.
Vehicles used to maintain the highways
are painted orange. Be prepared to slow down or stop
for them. When you see orange equipment on the road,
workers will be nearby.
One or more lanes may be closed when
road work is going on. Orange signs and changeable message
boards warn you that people and slow moving equipment
are ahead. Signs will tell you which lanes are closed
and a line of orange cones will direct you to the open
lanes. Do not cross the line of cones.
Dont stop or slow down to watch
road work. Keep going at the posted speed limit for
the construction zone. Obey any special signs or instructions
from signal persons at road construction sites.
NOTE: Fines are doubled in highway
construction or main-tenance zones when workers are

Proof of auto insurance must also be provided to DMV when you register or renew the license on a vehicle you own.
