Esma MURAT – Ömer HASAR / ISTANBUL, (DHA)
In their daily lives, they can be both visually impaired and confronted. Steering towards those who will roll on the streets puncture their vehicles. Visually impaired from birth, Mustafa Güler (40) told that he wandered around the most crowded neighborhoods of Istanbul regarding the events that took place.
There are approximately 800,000 visually impaired people living in Turkey. Visually impaired Mustafa Güler is one of the disabled people who encounter in daily life.
Güler talked about walking around Mecidiyeköy, one of the most crowded areas of Istanbul, which is affected by the events taking place these days. Güler said that the problematic side of the parking education going upwards enough is that those who are trained in the queue-oriented metrobuses will also be trained and those who are trained in the training of electric scooters tell their problems.
“DO I GET TIME BY TAKING THE METROBUS? HE HAS FEAR”
Mustafa Güler, who is mentioned as the people whose construction is about to be completed, said, “We are remembered in the past days. We are remembered every day. We should not talk about the problems in our lives every day. But we are always remembered by the disabled. Istanbul is a very big sight seeing a city. Istanbul is not exactly suitable for the visually impaired at the moment. There is no way for the people inside the metrobus stops. There are billboards everywhere. At the same time, while the metrobuses will travel to the back, we cannot make the departure of the metrobus that we will get on. This situation causes demand accidents. We approach the metrobus with fear for any person between the metrobus and the pavement. Am I safe? there is fear. The important point is at the root of these problems. They are intended for metrobuses and should place yellow lines. At the same time, the billboard should be removed and an accessible public transportation should be made,” he said.
“A ELECTRIC SCOOTER STARTED TO OBSTACLE US”
What happened when avoiding seeing is mentioned as follows:
“There are recently used electric scooters on the sidewalks. The other us, however, are not electric scooters yet. More geared towards older kids than wrong parking. No matter how well we use our walking sticks for the visually impaired, we still hit the scooter. This is a problem we do not see. Because it parks inside correctly. We want to improve park education. Again, he unconsciously parks his vehicles in the direction of the sidewalks. Let the person who parks his car on the pavement turn off a paint and walk the streets. Then what will it mean to us? At the same time, when we hit that car, we should be angry, but the owner is scolding us.”
“YELLOW LINES ARE SYMBOLICALLY PLACED AND THE LINE FINISH ON THE ROAD”
Güler says that there are another yellow lines for the visually impaired. Yellow lines are a problem at the beginning. Istanbul does not have a yellow line. I can go to a certain place in Istanbul with the yellow line. Symbolically, a line is drawn and this line ends on the road. When the line is over, the scanner scanner with our God-given walking stick, bumping into him, bumping into this. The yellow line is only placed on the main streets in Istanbul. However, we cannot see the yellow lines in our neighborhoods. We want it everywhere. I’ll never forget, one day I was crossing the street and a motorcyclist passed over my walking stick. That cane landed on my stomach. “I had a walking stick collection, but at that moment, different accidents could have happened,” he said.
