For individuals with low vision who don’t use a mobility aid, or for cane users, this is so true. Whomever created those things definitely didn’t have “universal access” in mind. 🙂 For someone with low vision, especially when they don’t have peripheral vision, they look ahead and miss everything left, right, up, and below. This means that wet floor signs often make us topple. However, with Makiko, we don’t even know there are wet floor signs around… she just maneuvers us so gracefully around everything.
