Driving Tip of the Month #2 Checking your car fit

Join us at a CarFit event to see how you can better fit in your vehicle.

For the air bag to properly protect you in a crash, you should be at least 10 inches away from the steering wheel.  Next time you’re in your vehicle take a look at how far your chest is away from your steering wheel.

Too far from the pedals? There are adjustments for that.

This tip comes to you from the Older Drivers Sub Committee. Find out more about the work of  the Transportation Committee and its sub committees.
