Out on the street

One behind the other, the couple walks along the street, both holding white canes. "If that edge is no longer there, you have to pay attention," the man warns, as his cane slides over the grass next to the newly constructed pavement. "I don't understand why they didn't finish that edge," the woman says. A little later, when crossing a road, the man explains: "I have to pay attention on the other side, because there is a lamp-post in the middle of the pedestrian crossing." He makes his way around the post and turns right on the pavement.
