Question Exiting Gate

When leaving a village gate, is it considered rude to tailgate through, up close to the car ahead? Or do you keep your distance and wait for the bar to go down and up?

Go ahead and tailgate without worry, staying inches off of the bumper in front of you...as they're 'breakaway' gate arms.



With cameras.

Not rude just not wise when the arm comes down and marks up your car

So long as you want to pay a couple hundred dollars to pay for a replacement arm. It’s not an issue of manners. Rather it’s an issue of the proper procedure. There are cameras to ascertain who broke the arm of a gate.

Yesterday i came through the Pinellas gate (Winn Dixie side) a golf cart was in front of me going through the gate, I was schocked, the automobile behind me, passed me up and went throught the gate with the golf cart in front of me. You never know what you are going to see.

Seriously? I'm not sure about "rude" but certainly stupid and dangerous.

The exit gates stay up a lot longer than the entrance gates. Plus, the sensors that open the exit gates are located further back to make sure the gate opens so you don't have to come to a complete stop as you do going in the entrance gate. Even if they start coming down before you reach the gate, unless you are going way too fast, they should open up by the time you reach them. I'm talking about EXIT gates, not entrance gates. Tailgating through entrance gates is extremely rude and dangerous, IMHO.

You can even have fun with it, if you have a tailgater following you put your brakes on as you exit the gate and watch as they Sh#$ their shorts
