BALTIMORE Jan. 28, 2011 Mark Anthony Riccobono 11:30 a.m. EST January 29
Mr. Riccobono said: "I have been blind since the age of five, so I never got to try for a driver’s license or drive a car without another person telling me which way to steer. The NFB’s leadership in the Blind Driver Challenge™ has taken something almost everyone believed was an impossible dream and turned it into reality. I am looking forward to getting behind the wheel and demonstrating to the world that being blind does not prevent me from engaging in any activity I choose as long as I am able to get the information I need. This will be a truly historic occasion for my blind brothers and sisters and for America, and I am humbled and proud to be part of it."
