How about removing the gates and installing stop signs with red light cameras--it appears to me there are at least 10 gates whacked each year @ the St. James gate

I keep thinking about this, and wonder why someone would ask. At the very most, the emergency responders would encounter one, maybe two gates.

Turned on to Canal Street from 466A. Sheriff car right behind me. Used my card to pass through the gate. Looked in my mirror and the gate opened for the Sheriff's car right after me. I couldn't tell if he used a gate card but the gate opened quickly so I "assume" he had a gate card.

This would result in at least that number of golf carts getting whacked each year.
