CarFit is a national program that was developed through the collaboration of AAA,The American Society on Aging, AARP, and American Occupational Therapy Association. Through CarFit, GTIPI helps Georgia seniors find out how aging and its effects change the way they fit in their vehicles and how that may affect their driving.

Why CarFit?

The number of seniors in Georgia is growing rapidly:

  • People over 65 are the fastest-growing population segment in the U.S. 
  • By 2030, one in five drivers will be age 65 or older (over 30 million people)

In May 2006, GTIPI began CarFit in Georgia, the first program of its kind for senior drivers in the state. GTIPI’s goal is to keep seniors driving safely for as long as possible. CarFit is designed to give senior drivers a quick, comprehensive check on:

  • Correct safety belt positioning
  • Mirror adjustments
  • Distancing from airbags
  • Overall fit in their vehicles
