It was interesting to me that it was the Del Mar gate in all the videos. Some people did even stop as they saw the arm coming down?? That gate has an automatic sensor to open as your getting close, so these guys had to be speeding through. Remind me not to drive over that way any more...

Pardon me, but this was hysterical. I thought I was watching a segment of the Keystone Kops,,, lol

Delmar Gate 6 was hysterical!! I see she moved the broken gate out of the way then beat feet to get out of there!

SMILE! Your on candid camera, Lady...you and your cute little red cap!

I use the Del Mar gate daily, and frankly I'm really aggravated by knuckleheads riding two inches from my rear bumper so they can avoid stopping at the gate. It's not as if going through the gate legally is difficult. You can use your card or push the button, but if that's too much work for you, all you have to do is drive up to within a few inches of the gate and it automatically opens! People never cease to amaze me . . . . . Just once I'd like to slam on my brakes on my way through the gate and "lower the boom" one of these people. But I'd probably damage my own vehicle.

just make sure you're clear of the gate and do it!
