Making Roads A Little Safer

The Department of Highway Safety, AARP and AAA are hosting CarFit events around the state.

Today in Tallahassee, CarFit volunteers inspected vehicles and instructed drivers.

Kim Jones, safety coordinator for the Florida DMV, says the whole car gets a thorough check and it costs the driver nothing.

“We do a check of the whole vehicle; of their lights make sure their break lights are working and everything. A lot of mature drivers live alone and there’s not another person to check them for them,” said Jones.

But it’s not just seniors who need to get their cars checked.

CarFit events like the one held in Tallahassee today are for all ages.

    I believe that after you turn 60 years old you should be required to take your drivers test again and have to retake it every 5 years. I’m talking about the driver’s test you take when you’re 16 yes old. A ROAD test, I would hope after 45-50 yrs of driving you would know your signs. They need to go back on the road and be evaluated!
