Marika Posted May 11, 2008 Report Share Posted May 11, 2008 I'm wondering if anyone on this board can recommend a decent, not too expensive PERS system for my mother. PERS stands for Personal Emergency Response System. It's a push-button radio transmitter that you wear around your neck or on your wrist. If you're in need of help, you push the button and the system puts you in touch with a central station that can call for help for you. I'm sure you've all seen the commercial with the elderly lady who says, "help me, I've fallen and I can't get up". Well, I'm looking to get one of those systems for my mother since she's now alone and I don't live all that close to her so I can't check in on her on a daily basis so instead I'd like to get her a PERS system. Anyone have experience with such a system and have suggestions? If you really want to make people safe drivers again then simply remove all the safety features from cars. No more seat belts, ABS brakes, traction control, air bags or stability control. No more anything. You'll see how quickly people will slow down and once again learn to drive like "normal" humans.
