Senior Car Fit

Thursday, October 11, 2018

To help older drivers maintain their driving independence by finding the best combination of adjustments for confident operation of their cars, Cranberry’s police department and EMS, together with AAA, AARP and the American Occupational Therapy Association, will provide senior drivers with a personalized evaluation to help ensure comfortable positioning of seats, safety belts, sun visors, mirrors, head restraints and pedal movement for a safe driving experience. The program’s 12-point fit check, is free and takes about 20 minutes. In addition to offering help in making recommended adjustments, trained evaluators may suggest the use of adaptive devices, such as pedal, visor or seat belt extenders to help achieve a perfect fit.

Traffic and road conditions have changed a lot since motorists 65 and older first passed their driving tests.  But so have the vehicles themselves.  Instruments have changed.  Sight lines have changed.  Drive train technology has changed.  Safety and comfort features have been added.  And as people age, so do their own physical limitations.  But to assure safe operation, all of these changes need to fit comfortably with the needs of each individual driver. 

CarFit is hosted by Cranberry Township Police, Cranberry Township EMS, AAA, AARP and AOTA (American Occupational Therapy Association).
