Does Your Car Fit You?

Improve your safety and comfort behind the wheel with help from CarFit

Although older drivers are the demographic group with the highest rate of seatbelt use — and the lowest percentage of alcohol-related accidents — they are more likely to be killed or seriously injured when a crash occurs.

Why? Older drivers are more physically fragile than their younger counterparts, and they're generally less able to withstand the impact of a vehicular accident.

Fortunately, there are ways for drivers to adapt to their cars — and adjust their "fit" within them — in order to reduce their risk of injury during a crash.

CarFit, a free educational program created by the American Society on Aging and developed in collaboration with AAA, AARP, and the American Occupational Therapy Association, helps address these safety concerns.
