CarFit is a community-based, educational program developed by AAA, AARP and AOTA (American Occupational Therapy Association) to promote continued safe driving and mobility among older drivers by focusing attention on safety, comfort and fit. CarFit events are staffed by trained volunteers. At CarFit events, a 12-point checklist is reviewed with driving participants to assess how well the driver fits in his/her vehicle and to explain vehicle safety features. In these 20-minute sessions, technicians often recommend minor alterations of the car seat, steering wheel, and mirrors for a better and safer driving experience.
CarFit classes are offered through AAA and other organizations throughout New Jersey.
