CarFit is an educational program that offers older adults the opportunity to check how well their personal vehicles “fit” them.
The CarFit program also provides information and materials on community-specific resources that could enhance their safety as drivers, and/or increase their mobility in the community.
Use the videos below to learn more about CarFit and see how you can make your car safer and fit you properly. A proper fit in one’s car can greatly increase not only the driver’s safety but also the safety of others.
