In reply to Ed Eames

Kudos to Dr. Ed Eames for his letter to the editor in the February "Forum." He charges all of us to press every state's Department of Motor Vehicles to include more white cane law content in driver's license testing. That need was driven home to me, so to speak, in a recent conversation with a paratransit operator. He was totally unaware of the symbolism of a pedestrian displaying a white cane. Wow! I understand that paratransit drivers must be certified for a specialized class of license, a category demanding more rigorous, and frequent testing!
