Throughout the world, the long white cane is used by people who are blind or visually impaired as a tool for safe and reliable navigation. The white cane is a symbol of the user’s skills and talents, mobility and independence. It also allows the sighted person to recognize that the user is visually impaired.
The 2015 Missouri White Cane Safety Day is October 10. There are many events being held across the state to increase awareness of the white cane traffic safety laws in Missouri. For more information visit walk.moblind.org
