MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A team of automotive technicians and health professionals will help senior drivers in Madison check how comfortable and safe their vehicles are.
Darcie Olson is an instructor for the Madison College Occupational Therapy Assistant Program. She says drivers' vision, flexibility, strength and other physical conditions may change as they age. The CarFit program can help them clear off blind spots, adjust headroom space, examine foot positioning and check safety belts.
The free service is on Monday, May 6, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Madison College West Campus.
Interested seniors should call (608) 258-2313 to make an appointment.
