White Cane Laws in the United States

Woman walking with white caneMost people probably don't realize that there are laws regarding white canes and pedestrians who are blind in the United States. And these laws vary by state.

The American Council of the Blind (ACB) has compiled a detailed description of white cane safety laws in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. This website also includes the penalties for breaking the law as well as links to the state statutes.

On October 15 each year, we hold National White Cane Safety Day, a day of awareness-raising and advocacy. Events are held throughout the country to teach the community about the safety and rights of pedestrians who are blind.
