One More Thing to Worry About: Scrambled Signals on Electronic Doorlocks

Did you know that your cell phone has the power to scramble the electronic programming on your truck's door lock conrol fob? US Rider is warning people to keep cell phones at least an inch away from remote controls on key chains...or you may find yourself out in the cold. or the hot. or the rain. or the whatever. Be careful where you toss those keys! Don't toss your keys and your cell phone in a backpack or even your jacket pocket.

I wonder if US Rider has heard one of my favorite jokes, the one about the farrier who locked his keys in his truck? It took him an hour to get his apprentice out.

USRider offers nationwide roadside assistance designed especially for equestrians. The plan includes standard features such as flat-tire repair, battery assistance and lockout services, plus towing up to 100 miles and roadside repairs for tow vehicles and trailers with horses, emergency stabling, veterinary and farrier referrals, and more. (I didn't know that, either.)
