TSA To Reward Some Travelers With Less-Intrusive Screenings

Based on an assessment of low risk potential

|

Some airline passengers deemed a low-security risk will be randomly selected for quicker, less intrusive screening beginning this year, based on information they provide when reserving a ticket, according to federal rules published this week.

Unlike the existing PreCheck Program in which fliers sign up for expedited screening after volunteering certain information and paying a fee, the new initiative will apply to all passengers.

The new rules, published Tuesday in the Federal Register, were proposed by the Transportation Security Administration and will take effect following a public comment period that ends Oct. 13.

  1. Does this mean the TSA will open the zippers on the inner pockets of my suitcase rather than just slitting the fabric with a razor blade?

    Fuck the TSA

  2. Yay!

    Hold it.

    There’s not a snowball’s chance in hell that I’ll ever be selected “low-security risk.” Given I refuse to bow before fascists I’ll always be selected for enhanced scrutiny.
