CarFit is an educational program that offers older adults the opportunity to check how well their personal vehicles "fit" them.
Driver safety programs improve adult driver safety by addressing cognitive abilities and skills, however, older drivers can also improve their safety by ensuring their cars are properly adjusted for them. A proper fit in one's car can greatly increase not only the driver's safety but also the safety of others.
Several Missouri City Officers are certified CarFit technicians. They will assist you in adjusting your mirrors, seat and ensuring you know how to operate the various controls in your vehicle. If there are issues you are having, they can recommend different devices so you can continue to safely and easily operate your vehicle.
