Culver City Partners With AAA & AARP to Offer CarFit to Drivers 55+
The Culver City Senior and Social Services Division will host a CarFit event on Saturday, July 28th from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Culver City Senior Center. CarFit is an educational program that offers older adults the opportunity to check how well their personal vehicles "fit" them.
At a CarFit event, a team of trained technicians and/or health professionals work with each participant to ensure they "fit" their vehicle properly for maximum comfort and safety. A CarFit check takes approximately 20 minutes to complete. Valid Driver’s license and Car required.
Older drivers are often the safest drivers in that they are more likely to wear their seatbelts, and less likely to speed or drink and drive. However, older drivers are more likely to be killed or seriously injured when a crash does occur. A proper fit in one's car can greatly increase not only the driver's safety but also the safety of others.
The event is open to all drivers age 55+ but appointments must be made for the event. Please call (310) 253-6700 to make a reservation. The event is co-sponsored by Association of American Retired Persons (AARP), American Automobile Association (AAA), American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) and the Culver City Senior Citizens Association (CCSCA).
The Senior & Social Services Division, a multi-service agency housed at the Culver City Senior Center, provides a variety of educational, recreational and social services that meet the needs and interests of seniors, residents with disabilities and members of the general community. The numerous programs and services offered provide access to information and support as well as opportunities for participation in activities that lead to personal growth and enrichment. The Division is part of the Culver City Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department.
