Senior drivers get safety tips in national AAA program

(Continued)

Mirror adjustment is probably the most common problem identified by the program, Anthony said. Some drivers are unaware of all of their vehicle’s safety features.

“Most people (who take part), we tell them something they didn’t already know,” she said.

CarFit is a national program developed by AAA, AARP and the American Occupational Therapy Association.

“Driving today is more difficult than ever because of increased traffic congestion, longer commute distances, new technology and faster speeds,” Anthony said. “Attending a CarFit event is just one way older motorists can ease the stress associated with driving.”

She said AAA is eager to hold CarFit events for groups requesting them. More information about the program and senior driving issues is available at www.seniordriving.aaa.com.
