My neighbor (he's actually my Wife's brother-in-law) leaves for work in the morning: Open garage door, reverse out into driveway, turn the car around by going back and forth 9 to 17 times, get out of car, close garage door, open driveway gate, drive out of gate, get out of car, close gate, drive onto street. My Wife sometimes carpools with him, so we wait for him in the morning and open his driveway gate before he starts the car. With the gate already open he backs out of the garage straight onto the street and closes the garage door and gate at the same time, with no back-and-forth-ing umpteen times in the driveway, saving at least 1 minute and who know how much fuel. We can't understand why he can't open the gate himself when he opens his garage door - it's only 6 meters (20ft) away?
