The focus should be on braille cash, otherwise braille ATM’s make even less sense even with future innovation of self drive vehicles.

Would like to meet the folks who came up with this idea. It’s about as pragmatic as a pig wearing a watch.

TL : DR - it’s cheaper to make all keypads the same instead of different ones for walk ups vs drive ups


Also, without braille instructions, a blind person would have to tell their Uber driver their pin to get cash.
