Planning for Those “Senior Moments”


As an Estate Planner, I’m big on planning in general – so I was intrigued when I heard that people with remote access to their vehicle can open their car using a cell phone if they accidentally lock themselves out.  I don’t know if it’s fact or myth.  From what I’ve heard and read, the verdict is out… but you have to admit that it’s a novel idea.  I confess, the attorney in me makes me to be a bit of a Doubting Thomas.  Apparently, the point of controversy is the range of your remote to your vehicle.  The skeptics say that those who give it a try are usually within 200 feet of their vehicle when they perform their trial with their keyless remote and cell phone, which is why it works.  Who knows.  Either way, I thought you might enjoy a video on how it’s done.  Ctrl+Click here to check it out. Of course, your safest bet is to not lock your keys in the car in the first place, carry a spare in your purse or wallet, or leave one with someone you feel comfortable calling in times of need.  (I’ve personally had to use that option a time or two.)  But, since life happens, I say the more proactive planning – the better!  So, give it a try some day if you like and let me know how it goes.  If I beat you to it, I’ll do the same.  Speaking of phones, why not give me a ring to discuss you or your loved one’s estate plan updates or options.  The door to Parrish Law in Saratoga is always open, and the peace of mind that comes with a good estate plan is priceless!
