ELDERLY DRIVERS: Program Aims To Test Safety Fit

Posted on: 10:01 pm, May 10, 2013, by


The Iowa Department of Transportation has teamed up with the American Association of Retired People to promote safe senior driving.

An event called CarFit will take place in the parking lot of the Varied Industries Building at the Iowa State Fairgrounds on May 15, from 9 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

At the event, health professionals and trained volunteers will review 12 key areas with older drivers to ensure they “fit” their vehicle properly for maximum comfort and safety. CarFit also provides information and materials on community-specific resources that enhance driver safety and mobility.
