'THE VISUALLY DISABLED SEEED THE AUTHORITY WHO NOT WANT TO SEE'
Visually impaired Salih Pelit, the head of the blind intellectuals Association, who stated that he detected deficiencies in the Izmir Metro, including IZBAN, in his studies for the visually impaired and mentally disabled, said: and we found that it was insufficient. I continued to follow this incident again. I myself captured the shortcomings in the subway with the camera of the phone. It should be ensured that a visually impaired person goes from the entrance to the subway, starting from the entrance of the subway, to the roads, stairs to the platforms, by the embossed yellow path. These roads do not take us down to the platform in Izmir. It only goes up to a point, there are cuts in between. This cut is very dangerous for our safety. As the visually impaired, we want urban life at an international standard. We want a transport guarantee. We want the yellow roads to be built in order and order. But the administrators do not get up and detect these mistakes. Although we say it, they stubbornly say that we have no deficiency. Visually impaired see it, and officials who do not want to see it. '
'WE SAY LET'S DETECT IT TOGETHER, THEY DON'T GET THERE'
Stating that İZBAN is a danger factor in itself, Pelit said that there are some deficiencies in the subway as well, “When we complain about this deficiency via e-mail and telephone, the managers absolutely do not accept it. We say get up, let's find out together, they do not agree. He said, "We will take legal action soon."
