guide road / braille blocks

How can the visually impaired cross the crosswalk without braille blocks?
Why is there no braille block on the pedestrian crossing?
I have improved the problems of existing blocks and
‘Guide Road’ is a block that can be installed on a pedestrian crossing.

Usually, visually impaired leave the area when crossing the crosswalk
because to follow the sound of the acoustic signal.
But, Guide Road is like a rope in the dark
and help visually impaired to walk fast and straight.
Also, it can be a speed limiter for pedestrians on the crosswalk.

It's a Equal Pedestrian Crossing Solutions for everyone.
