CarFit Events Help Keep Older Drivers Safe

One of the keys to helping older drivers stay behind the wheel is to make vehicle adjustments for slower reflexes and more limited range of motion. Even the simplest adjustments — like changing the angle on side mirrors to eliminate dangerous blind spots and reduce nighttime glare — can make a huge difference.

Check out this video to see how an AAA “CarFit” technician takes an elderly driver through the adjustment process.

CarFit is a national educational program developed by the American Society on Aging, the American Automobile Association, AARP, and the American Occupational Therapy Association.

If you’re an older driver who wants to keep driving safely as long as possible, register for a CarFit event near you. There is little or no cost to attend. For more information, visit www.car-fit.org.
