The Airport Security infographic illustrates a clear and defined evolution of the airport and how ridiculously intrusive some of the processes are.
Traveling has never been more of a nuisance now that airports have intensified baggage checks and Customs clearances. National Opt-Out Day, which was created after a series of body scans were leaked, is designed for flyers to opt out of the invasive search processes like aggressive pat-downs, body scans and strip searches. While TSA officials say that this will help make flights safer for passengers, the invasion of privacy, not to mention unnecessary and inappropriate exposure, is something that should be strongly considered. As the holiday season is approaching, travelers should be wary of extra long lineups and leave room for potential holdups at the airport.
