What is CarFit? CarFit is an educational program that offers older adults the opportunity to check how well their personal vehilces "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.

Why if CarFit important? Older drivers are often the safest driers in that they are more likely to wear their seatbelts, less likely to speed, and less likely to drink and drive. However, older drivers are more likely to be killed or seriously injured when a crash does occur due to the greater fragility of their aging bodies. (Source:NHTSA). Driver safety programs improve adult driver safety by addressing cognitive abilities and skills, however, older drivers can also improve their safety by ensuing their cars are properly adjusted for them. A proper fit in one's car can greatly increase not only the driver's safety but also the safety of others.

How is CarFit check completed? At a CarFit event, a team of trained technicians and/or health professionals, work with each participant to ensure they "fit" their vehicle properly for maxiumum comfort and safety. A CarFit check takes approximately 20 minutes to complete.
