A blind woman whose request was denied for a special sign outside her house to slow traffic had some good news when a viewer came forward to help fix her problem.
Lynda Tennette, who went blind almost two years ago, asked for a ‘caution blind person’ sign to help slow people down. On a street with no sidewalks, Tennette has also had a few close calls walking in her neighborhood with a mobility specialist who helps get her acclimated to living with blindness.
But CBS 6 viewer Wesley Benton, owner of Benton Home Improvement, saw Tennette’s story and reached out to the Problem Solver team to see how he could help. Benton’s solution was to install a special mailbox that Tennette could access from the back.
“Wow, this is really nice,” Tennette said. “Well, can I give you a hug for doing this for me? Thank you so much!! Just shocked.”
