I might've mentioned this before, but here it is again.
For years, I had struggled and wiggled past the access "arm" at the parking ramp's access. I even ran into the pillar with my motorcycle helmet. A couple years ago, I bought an access card which raises the arm and allows me to drive up the ramp. So I used to wrestle my card out, trigger the access sensor, then wrestle it back into my pocket.
Now I leave the card in my wallet, and my wallet in my left pants pocket. The sensor post is on a curb. Now I drive up to the sensor, place my foot on the curb, then the card in the wallet in my pocket triggers the sensor.
Passive access is great. That way, I'll never misplace my card, unless I misplace my wallet. No wrestling, no fumbling.
