Drivers, especially seniors, are encouraged to attend a CarFit clinic from 1:30 p.m. until 3:30 p.m. on Friday, October 21, at the Best Western Plus Inn and Conference Center in DuBois to ensure they’re driving safely.

 

The clinic is sponsored by AAA, AARP and the American Occupational Therapy Association Inc. in cooperation with PennDOT, Penn State DuBois, and the Central PA Highway Safety Network.

 

Drivers who attend the clinic will learn whether they “fit” their cars well, with trained installers and Penn State DuBois occupational therapy students on hand to ensure the seniors are traveling comfortably and safely. Students are trained as CarFit Technicians who can make recommendations for adjustments to mirrors, seats, steering wheels, seat belts, and more. 

 

This event is only to assist drivers in fitting their cars to them. Participants do not take part in a driving test.

 

The Central PA Highway Safety Network is supported by federal funds distributed through PennDOT.
