One in two people who are blind or vision impaired have had a near miss with a vehicle over the past five years while trying to cross the road, according to Guide Dogs NSW/ACT .
It has teamed up with the state government, NRMA, the NSW Police Force and the Centre for Road Safety at Transport NSW to raise driver awareness of pedestrian safety.
Guide Dogs NSW/ACT launched its road safety awareness campaign Watch Out, Cane About.
One in 15 Guide Dogs NSW/ACT clients have been struck by a vehicle.
"Crossing the road can be treacherous for anyone, but imagine what it's like if you can't see," the chief executive, Dr Graeme White, said.
"Clients reported that most incidents occurred with cars not stopping or giving way at marked pedestrian crossings. Other common incidents experienced when crossing roads were drivers flashing lights, honking horns, shouting instructions and even getting out of the car to physically assist."
