PARKING GARAGE LONG LINE SECRET

Your trying to get out of terminal four garage at Sky Harbor and only three lanes are open and the rest of the lanes say closed... You hit the gas and head for the closed gate like your James Bond and your going to crash through the gate but you being just a mere mortal stop and use the automated system that to the best of my knowledge will always work EVEN IF THE LANE IS CLOSED. THIS SECRET CAN SAVE YOU 20 MINUTES!!!

tip 1. Hide your garage receipt in your car before you go on a trip so it does not get demagnitized.
tip 2. Have at least two credit cards with good mag stripes in case one credit card does not work.

I always use the "closed lanes" for credit card exiting. Invariably someone will pull up in lane behind me then have no clue what to do when they reach the barricade with no attendant. D'Oh!
