                         CONCURRENT RESOLUTION


 
    Expressing the sense of the Congress that States should require 
candidates for driver's licenses to demonstrate an ability to exercise 
     greatly increased caution when driving in the proximity of a 
               potentially visually impaired individual.

Whereas many people in the United States who are blind or otherwise visually 
        impaired have the ability to travel throughout their communities without 
        assistance;
Whereas visually impaired individuals encounter hazards that a pedestrian with 
        average vision could easily avoid, many of which involve crossing 
        streets and roadways;
Whereas the white cane and guide dog should be generally recognized as aids to 
        mobility for visually impaired individuals;
Whereas many States do not require candidates for driver's licenses to associate 
        the use of the white cane or guide dog with potentially visually 
        impaired individuals; and
Whereas visually impaired individuals have had their white canes and guide dogs 
        run over by motor vehicles, have been struck by the side-view mirrors of 
        motor vehicles, and have suffered serious personal injury and death as 
        the result of being hit by motor vehicles: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), 
That it is the sense of the Congress that each State should require any 
candidate for a driver's license in such State to demonstrate, as a 
condition of obtaining a driver's license, an ability to associate the 
use of the white cane and guide dog with visually impaired individuals 
and to exercise greatly increased caution when driving in proximity to 
a potentially visually impaired individual.
