You'd think that would break their habit of tailgating but some don't get it. It's best to act as though they are not there but they desire the attention they bring to themselves.

When exiting, as long as the car behind has broken the beam, the arm will stay up. Can't see anything rude in that at all.
Entering is a whole different ball game.

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.
I don't think it is even possible to tailgate through an entrance gate. Those gates come down very quickly.

Now for the exit gates......I've counted as many as 8 (yes eight) cars exit through a gate with the gate remaining up the entire time. The timing of an exit gate is not like the entrance gates. People caravan through the exits all the time. Take a look and see for yourself.

I always wait for the gate to start to come down, then approach, and it will reverse direction.

Yes, the exit gates are activated by an electric eye........about 10 feet prior to the gate.

The exit gates are meant to facilitate traffic between the cars and MMP. If cars tailgate, carts and cyclist cannot cross. Think of it as a stop sign, which is exactly what it turns into when a tailgater breaks the gate.

There is an eye to keep the gate open and it will not come down on you. You do not have to be right on the tail of the car in front just in front of the eye.

I think it would be very rude to wait until the exit gate arms go down before you try to exit. There are some gates with stoplights just outside the gates. Can you imagine how PO'd the people in line waiting to exit would get if they had to wait until the gate went down after every car. They would have to wait for multiple light changes. Use your head folks.

Yup, the "exit" gates stay up till all vehicles are long gone. You can even stop under an open gate and it will stay up.

Finally some common sense when it comes to exit gates . They are to keep traffic moving . Remember , golf carts crossing have stop signs , exit gates do not . You are not suppose to stop to let carts pass through .
