CarFit For Senior On The Wheel
GAINESVILLE - While safety can't always be assured on the road, steps to prevent accidents can. That's what a group of students is trying to encourage seniors to do behind the wheel. Wednesday afternoon, University of Florida students trained in occupational therapy hosted an event called "CarFit."
One of the students involved, Caroline Davidson says its a great way to make sure cars fit their drivers. She adds, "You're comfortable and that's the way you prefer to drive but you don't realize that you can't see some people on the side and your side mirrors. And often times we bump things and hit things and don't realize it."
Students lead drivers and their cars through a 12-point checklist and recommend personal vehicle adjustments and adaptations.
