Car-Fit: Helping Mature Drivers Find Their Safest Fit

Safe driving means more than knowing the rules and paying attention. On Oct. 17, take 20 minutes out of your day to have trained Car-Fit technicians check to be sure your car is adjusted properly to “fit” you. This is not a driving evaluation; technicians check such things as mirror adjustments to reduce blind spots, foot positioning on pedals, seat positioning/line of sight, and head restraint adjustment. If necessary, an occupational therapist will be on hand to recommend adaptive devices.

 

You can make an appointment so you won’t have to wait. Call the Tappahannock Police Dept. at 443-3992 to reserve your time. You can also have your vehicle fluids checked for free, enjoy a snack, and enter a raffle to win a prize.

 

Car-Fit is an educational program created by AAA, AARP and the American Occupational Therapy Assn. This event is brought to you by the Virginia Dept. of Aging & Rehabilitative Services, the Essex Co.-Tappahannock Triad and the Warsaw-Richmond County Triad. 

Triad is a partnership among law enforcement, older citizens and community organizations to enhance the safety and quality of life of older citizens. For more information, email the Triad at essextriad@gmail.com, or contact the Tappahannock Police Dept. 804-443-3992.
