Section 3: You are in a [shudder] Situation of Uncertainty . . . What Now?
When you find yourself at a crossing in a Situation of Uncertainty, what should you do?
What CAN you do?
First ASSESS the risk of the crossing.
Then DECIDE whether the risk is acceptable.
If the risk is not acceptable, then CONSIDER ALTERNATIVES.
This section will cover each of these issues, one at a time, and then provide a checklist with some practice to help you put it all together.
At all crossings, including driveways and entrances, deaf-blind travelers are in a Situation of Uncertainty more often than other travelers.
Thus it is even more important that they be able to assess the risks of crossings, make informed decisions, and implement alternatives.
In addition to understanding the information covered in this section, deaf-blind students need to know how to get the information that is necessary to assess the risks of crossing -- if you want more information and ideas about this you can click here (you will be leaving the Self-Study Guide).
