Monday: AAA to Host Safety Program for Senior Drivers

older driver


WHAT: CarFit is an innovative program that could make a lifesaving difference to both older drivers and their loved ones. Developed through collaboration among AAA, the American Society on Aging, AARP and the American Occupational Therapy Association, CarFit is the first program to offer older adults the opportunity to check how their personal cars ‚€œfit‚€??? them.

Trained professionals will lead senior drivers through a 12-point checklist with their vehicle, recommend car adjustments and adaptations and offer community specific resources and activities that could make their cars 'fit' better or enhance their safety.

WHY: People over 65 are the fastest-growing population in the United States. By 2030, one in five drivers will be age 65 or older, which means there will be more than 30 million older drivers on our roads. CarFit provides older adults with the tools to feel more comfortable and in better control of their vehicles.

WHO: This event is sponsored by AAA East Central and Spaulding University.

WHEN: Monday, January 13, 12:30 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.

WHERE: AAA East Central, 321 Whittington Parkway, Louisville, KY 40222
