Union County CarFit Vehicle Safety Event for Seniors


Union County Freeholders Christopher Hudak and Vernell Wright spoke with Cathleen Lewis and Ron Esposito from AAA New Jersey and Union County Traffic Safety Program Coordinator Christine Marcantonio at the CarFit safety check event for senior drivers at the Garwood First Aid Squad.

The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders invited senior residents to participate in the free CarFit event to help ensure mature drivers fit their vehicles properly. The event offers drivers a quick, comprehensive check on correct safety belt position, distance from airbags, mirror alignment, and how well their vehicles suit their abilities. CarFit is a national program aimed at helping senior drivers find their safest fit in their personal vehicle. (Photo by Jim Lowney/County of Union)
