I never knew there was a push button on the resident side - never had a problem using the electronic pass card. Goes into the learn somethin' knew everyday column.

From what I have always understood, the roads in TV were built with public money, hence, they have to have public access, regardless if the gate is "manned" or not. Many of the gates in TV are "manned" during certain hours and not at night. Visitors are stopped when entering so a picture of the license tag is recorded, then allowed to enter. But if the gate is unattedned, there is a button you can push to gain access either directly or by a remote control from a security station.

Ahem, there are not buttons at every gate. Check the ones in Marion County.

I know for a fact that the Boone Gate on the north side of 441 doesnt have a button... My wife and I came in late one night (without our passes) and had to wait for someone to come in and open the gate for us.....
