Older drivers may be the safest drivers because they are more likely to wear seatbelts and tend to avoid risky driving behaviors. However, senior drivers are more susceptible to injury or death from a crash. A proper fit for drivers inside their vehicle can further enhance their safety.

CarFit is an educational program for older adults, offering the opportunity to check how their personal vehicle fits them, with the goal of increasing safety.

During each session, trained technicians and health professionals work with participants, ensuring vehicles provide maximum comfort and safety. Each CarFit check will take up to 20 minutes. Registration is not required.

Additional dates and locations will be announced.
