The London Lib Dem team, led by Caroline Pidgeon, have uncovered that 40 pedestrian crossings across Barnet and Camden are not fit for blind and partially sighted Londoners. Across London the figure is 347.
In 1995, the Department for Transport set out national accessibility standards for pedestrian crossings. This ensured that every crossing has either an audible sound and/or a rotating cone (under the box where the ‘Wait’ sign and push button are located). Some 16 years later and still many key crossings are not compliant. Lib Dem Caroline Pidgeon commented:
“It is a total disgrace that London has so many pedestrian crossings which are inaccessible for blind and partially sighted people.
It says everything about the low priority given to pedestrians by the Mayor of London that such basic safety standards are still not being met at so many pedestrian crossings across the capital.”

You’ve probably noticed that guide dogs have two leads - a soft lead and a harness.
If you ever see a blind person standing with the harness rested on the dog’s back instead of holding it, it is a signal that they would like some assistance.
You don’t need to be specially trained to help at a basic level, just go over and ask if they need any help and what they would like you to do.
Simple stuff that makes a different in the world :)
