    Totally random question, but every time I exit the parking garage after charging at Atlantic Station supercharger the gates mysteriously open before I scan my ticket.

    Does this happen to anyone else?
    Are they using cameras to identify teslas to immediately open the gates?

    I'm just curious and hope that someone out there has an answer.

    I believe they do detect a Tesla somehow. It hit me once when I was there for Cirque du Soleil. I parked by the SC's (but didn't use them because I didn't need them, I live too close so I would have only charged for two minutes) and went out that gate. I had already paid for my parking at a kiosk because I had been there longer than two hours, and the gate opened for me without me putting my ticket in. I could have saved $6...

    ha!
    Thanks for the replies. It is good to know that this happens to others.

    It has for me every time I am there on my North Carolina plate. This weekend I was there twice in a friend's car and it made him scan his ticket both times - he has South Carolina plates. I don't think the plates made the difference, but sharing nonetheless.

    In your use of the Atlantic Station SC, do you typically find an open space? It will be my stop as I pass through Atlanta on the way east, and I worry about getting there in busy Atlantic Staiton and having to wait for charging. Thanks,

    I've never had to wait. The Atlantic Station SC can get a bit busy but there's always a few stalls open.

    I've charged there maybe 10 times on various trips. There are 10 stalls there. I've never seen them all used, but I have seen over half used. I wouldn't worry about trying to find an empty space.
