Materials are provided to participants.  This program is co-sponsored by the Virginia Department of Health, Peninsula Agency on Aging, and York County Community Services. 
  • Peninsula Senior’s and Law Enforcement Together (S.A.L.T.) Car Fit Event – Monday, May 13, 9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.  Car Fit is a free community-based educational program designed to help mature drivers assess how well they and their cars fit together and what action they might take to improve that fit.  A team of trained volunteers will complete a 12-point checklist for participants and their vehicles on items such as adequate space from the steering wheel and proper use of seat belts.  The comprehensive check takes about 20 minutes to complete.  The event is being held at the Denbigh Community Center parking lot, 15198 Warwick Boulevard in Newport News.  The Car Fit program was created by the American Society on Aging and developed in cooperation with AAA, AARP, and the American Occupational Therapy Association.  For more information and to schedule your Cat Fit appointment, call (757) 890-3883.
