We all walk on footpaths everyday, but it turns out there’s a very important part of the path that we are ignoring.

While a lot of people might know the true meaning behind it… there's a lot of people who don’t know that these are actually braille trails.

Post

We are ashamed to say that some of us didn’t know what they are for either.

Each braille trail is a pathway of paving with dot and dash patterns. This is so it can be followed by a person with impaired vision, using a cane.

They have tiles with ridges that indicate which direction that the person is traveling.

The tiles with raised dots are used as warnings. This is why they have the raised dots at every train station and at traffic lights.

So if you ever find yourself walking along the braille trails, make sure you keep it clear, because they are definitely not for decoration.
