Parkers have alternative ways to leave the parking garage. The usual way is to use office-issued fobs – formerly, plastic cards –programmed to open the overhead door when touched to the sensor at the top of the exit ramp.
But a remote control allows drivers to open the door upon approach and not have to roll down the driver’s side window. Programmable garage door remotes are available from big box retailers and from Amazon. Best to stop by the office first to learn the necessary specs.
Or, if you are driving a newer model car, it may have that remote capability built into it. Check your owner’s manual, then ask the garage attendant to program it for you.
Climb a Few Flights
When Winter’s chill and slippery sidewalks keep you indoors, consider an exercise alternative: Get off the elevator early and take the stairs. Start slow – say just the last flight up – and add additional levels as you’re able. The (younger) reader who suggested this is now climbing the last 15 flights!
