PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) - Now that we are approaching one the busiest traveling days of the year, many people will take to the road and many will take hit the airports.
When that happens, often traffic becomes a nightmare. However, there have been rules set in place for decades. It's the no parking or waiting rule in the what we use to call the white zone. Now it's called the loading and unloading zone.
Over at Sky Harbor International Airport, people like to push the waiting limits when it comes to picking up people.
They use different techniques to extend their stay when they are only permitted to pick up and drop off if the passenger is waiting at the curb.
There is the "Hey, I'm going to pop open my trunk" trick as if at any second the trunk is about to be loaded with luggage.
There is also the "I'll read my phone and hope the parking enforcement officer doesn't notice me" trick.
The cellphone lot near the airport is for legally waiting for passengers. You can wait there until you get a call saying they're at the curb and even monitor their flight on a giant lighted information screen.
