Do you have a clear view out your car’s windows? Can you reach and manage all controls? While older drivers are among the safest drivers because we wear our seatbelts and are less likely to speed or drink and drive, we’re also more likely to suffer serious injuries or death in crashes because of greater fragility.
A new program called CarFit helps a driver explore vehicle adjustment and develop strategies to get the safest fit. Developed by AAA, AARP and the American Occupational Therapy Association, CarFit has a comprehensive website and in some areas, CarFit checks are available by a trained technician.
