CarFit Senior Driver Safety Event
District: Four
Meeting Type: Event
Date: Friday, September 12, 2014
Time: 10:00 am to 1:00 pm
Location Name: NE Focal Point Senior Center
Street Address: 227 NW 2nd Street
City: Deerfield Beach, FL
Directions: Event website
Purpose:
 
CarFit is an educational program that offers older adults the opportunity to check how well their personal vehicles "fit" them.
 
The CarFit program also provides information and materials on community-specific resources that could enhance their safety as drivers, and/or increase their mobility in the community.
 
Older drivers are often the safest drivers in that they are more likely to wear their seatbelts, and less likely to speed or drink and drive. However, older drivers are more likely to be killed or seriously injured when a crash does occur due to the greater fragility of their aging bodies.
 
Driver safety programs improve adult driver safety by addressing cognitive abilities and skills, however, older drivers can also improve their safety by ensuring their cars are properly adjusted for them. A proper fit in one's car can greatly increase not only the driver's safety but also the safety of others.
 
At a CarFit event, a team of trained technicians and/or health professionals work with each participant to ensure they "fit" their vehicle properly for maximum comfort and safety. A CarFit check takes approximately 20 minutes to complete.

CarFit Senior Driver Safety Event
District: Four
Meeting Type: Event
Date: Friday, September 19, 2014
Time: 9:00 am to 1:00 pm
Location Name: Broward Health (General) Medical Center
Street Address: 1600 S. Andrews Ave
City: Fort Lauderdale
Directions: Event Website
Purpose:

CarFit is an educational program created by the American Society on Aging, and developed in collaboration with AARP, AAA and the American Occupational Therapy Association.  The goals of this community-based program are three-fold:
o    Help older drivers improve the “fit” of their vehicles for   safety and comfort.
o    Promote conversations among older adults and families about driving safety and the continued need for mobility options to keep people participating in the life of their communities.
o    Link adults with relevant local resources that can help ensure they drive safely longer.
CarFit uses a trained team of volunteers, including an occupational therapist, to assist senior drivers with such items as:
o    A clear line of sight over the steering wheel;
o    Adequate space between the front airbag/steering wheel and the driver’s breastbone; properly adjusted head;
o    Proper positioning of gas and brake pedals;
o    Proper safety belt use and fit, and safe positioning of mirrors to minimize blind spots.
The 30 minute intervention not only provides an opportunity to open a positive, non-threatening conversation about driver safety, but it also provides specific community resources to help older drivers stay healthy and continue to drive for as long as safely possible.
 
If you are a trained technician and would like to volunteers please contact Joanne Puia at (954) 468-5266 or Jpuia@browardhealth.org.

Proposed Closure of the Main Street (SR-5) Bridge On-Ramp
District: Two
Meeting Type: Hearing
Date: Thursday, September 25, 2014
Time: 4:30 pm to N/A
Location Name: Hyatt Regency Jacksonville-Riverfront
Street Address: 225 East Coastline Drive
City: Jacksonville, FL 32202
Purpose:
The Florida Department of Transportation invites you to attend a public hearing to  discuss the proposed closure of the on-ramp from Independent Drive to the Main Street (SR-5) Bridge in Jacksonville, Florida.  The proposed ramp closure is being requested by the City of Jacksonville and is consistent with their plans for the redevelopment of the Jacksonville Landing.
 
For this reason, southbound access to the Main Street Bridge is being studied to determine if the two existing southbound access points can be modified to a single access point.  Currently, southbound bridge traffic can cross the bridge by entering from eastbound Independent Drive or from southbound Main Street.  The proposed  improvements recommend closing the     Independent Drive ramp  to the Main Street Bridge.
 
The hearing is being held to give interested persons an opportunity to express their views concerning the location, conceptual design, and social, economic, and environmental effects of the proposed improvements.
 
As of September 4, 2014, project documents will be available for your review during normal business hours at the Florida Department of Transportation, Urban Office, 2198 Edison Avenue, Jacksonville, FL  32204.  Persons wishing to submit a written       statement may do so at the hearing or mail them to the address provided no later than October 6, 2014.
 
Public participation is solicited without regard to race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, disability or family status.  Persons who require special accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act or persons who require translation  services (free of charge) should contact Will Lyons at the number below at least 7 days before the hearing.  (Si prefiere recibir esta carta en español, por favor contacte Esther Murray a las (904) 360-5348, Referencia: 435845-1).
