Take Off Your Shoes

Airport screening lines are expected to be long this summer. TSA PreCheck allows airline passengers "expedited security screening" through 160 US airports. There are a couple of programs that provide PreCheck status. The TSA Pre-Check program costs $85.  The U.S. Customs and Border Protection Global Entry program costs $100 for five years. TSA has signed up just 2.8 million participants or less than
3% of the estimated 100 million American adults that fly each year. While becoming more popular each month, TSA PreCheck will save time and irritation. (source: Dept. of Homeland Security).
