Description

CarFit® is a national educational program that offers older adults the opportunity to evaluate how well their personal vehicles "fit" them. Health professionals work with older drivers and review 12 key areas to ensure they "fit" their vehicle properly for maximum safety. A CarFit® check takes approximately 20 minutes to complete.

Three examples underscore the importance of road safety to the CarFit® program:

  • Knowing how to properly adjust one's mirrors can greatly minimize blind spots for drivers when changing lanes.
  • Good foot positioning on the gas and brake pedals is important. Drivers who reach with their toes to press on the pedals can cause fatigue in their legs and slow reaction time.
  • Drivers run a risk of serious injury if they are sitting closer than 10 inches from the steering wheel.
