ENDWELL (WBNG) — Local drivers had their vehicles properly adjusted for them by the CarFit program hosted at the Broome West Senior Center.
CarFit is an educational program that provides free adjustments to ensure that older drivers feel safe and secure in their car, especially as they are more prone to serious injuries when in a car crash.
CarFit’s technician, Amy Polhamus, says anyone who wants to feel more comfortable and learn proper adjustments even with a new vehicle should find a CarFit program near them.
“We do have a lot of drivers who come through and they’re happy with their adjustments,” Polhamus says. They leave here saying ‘wow, I’ve never seen this spot before in my car and now I can see clearly around it and I feel safer leaving the event’ and that’s our goal.”
Polhamus said it is so important that drivers feel comfortable in their car.
This can not only save a mature driver’s life, but also, decrease accidents and help keep everyone on the road safe.
