A pedestrian who is totally or partially blind and not carrying such a cane or using a service animal or a pedestrian who is deaf or hard of hearing or a pedestrian with a disability who is not using a service animal in any of the places, accommodations, or conveyances listed in section 20-127 shall have all of the rights and privileges conferred by law upon other persons, and the failure of a pedestrian who is totally or partially blind to carry such a cane or to use a service animal or of a pedestrian who is deaf or hard of hearing or of a pedestrian with a disability to use a service animal in any such places, accommodations, or conveyances does not constitute and is not evidence of contributory negligence.
