Guide dogs essential for the visually impaired


AFTER reading the letter from David C. E. Tneh, “Let trained dogs guide the blind freely” (The Star, Oct 3), I am compelled to revisit the subject of trained guide dogs leading the blind.

Tneh pointed out that in Malaysia, visually impaired individuals with trained guide dogs are not allowed in a majority of malls and are also forbidden in public transport hubs, KTM Komuter, LRT and MRT, making it difficult for the visually impaired to go about freely.
