CarFit is a program that helps older adults drive longer, and more safely, by "fitting" cars to individual drivers. Specially-trained volunteers will conduct a 12-point safety check, assessing and adjusting your car for proper "fit". The clinic is free and only takes about 20 minutes.
Past clinics have shown that nearly 40% of senior drivers had at least one critical safety issue needing to be addressed. Common issues are improper mirror adjustments, foot positioning on the gas and brake pedals and sitting too close to the steering wheel.
Tulsa Tech students will be performing maintenance checks. Clinicians will make adjustments and share information about vehicle adaptive devices as appropriate. An occupational therapist will also be on hand to help.
For reservations, please call Mickey Hinds (918) 664-9000, ext. 8443A CarFit check by a team of trained technicians and/or health professionals takes approximately 20 minutes to complete.
