The residents of Summit Greens, located in Clermont are working with the Clermont Police Department to implement Operation Car Fit. Car Fit is a national program developed through collaboration among AAA, the American Society on Aging, AARP and the American Occupational Therapy Association which is designed to give senior drivers a quick, comprehensive check on correct safety belt positioning, distance from airbags, and how well their vehicles suit their abilities. It’s FAST, FUN, and FREE!
The program takes place at the Summit Greens Clubhouse and helps make sure that seniors (most of whom are residents of Summit Greens) fit in their car safely. The Clermont Police Department provides training to the residents of Summit Greens so that they can implement this program and help their fellow residents remain comfortable and safe on the road.
