I pointed out that the CEO had clarified that this was allowed but he was adamant and insisted that drivers get fined if they make more than one drop-off
Detecting drop-offs may also be influenced by ergonomic factors, such as the type of cane tip (Kim, Wall Emerson, & Curtis, 2010b) and length of the cane (Rodgers & Wall Emerson, 2005).
We used the 50% absolute drop-off detection threshold and drop-off detection rates to measure the participants' detection of drop-offs (the dependent variables).
We found no significant difference in the participants' detection of drop-offs between the standard-length and the extended-length canes.
A preliminary study showed that cane users with earlier-onset visual impairment detected drop-offs better than those with later-onset visual impairment ; however, this was within the sample in which 10 of the 15 participants had later-onset impairment.
If cane users rely more on proprioceptive/ kinesthetic perception to detect drop-offs when using the two-point touch technique and rely more on vibrotactile perception to detect drop-offs when using the constant contact technique, differential deterioration of proprioceptive/kinesthetic and vibrotactile sensitivities may indicate possible interaction between a cane user's age and the type of cane technique used in drop-off detection.
This study used a mixed-measures design with block randomization, in which the participants used either the two-point touch technique or the constant contact technique to detect drop-offs of various depths.
This has also included access improvements for the bus and airport shuttle which links the airport with services to Leeds and Bradford alongside a new drop-off
and pick up zone for car passengers.
The FHWA recommends that state and local jurisdictions consider using a safety edge on resurfacing projects to help eliminate edge drop-offs.
The report "Safety Impacts of Pavement Edge Drop-offs," and drop-off brochure are available on-line at www.
A national UAE newspaper claimed that drivers who made more than one drop-off during a fare would be fined.
Al Ali said: "If four people decide to ride together in a cab on the same route, but will get off at four different points, the taxi driver is not permitted to stop the meter and restart the meter at every drop-off.
In particular, a few studies have shown that proprioceptive or kinesthetic and vibrotactile perceptual abilities, which appear to be involved in detecting drop-offs with the long cane, can be improved by practice (Diespecker, 1970; Fleischman & Rich, 1963; Graydon & Townsend, 1984; Sims & Morton, 1998).
In addition, some orientation and mobility (O&M) specialists have stated that it takes longer for many cane users to become competent in detecting drop-offs with the two-point touch technique than with the constant contact technique (R.
Trees can also be recycled by bringing them to drop-off
