Children and TSA Pat-Down Procedures

Pat or Scan: New Air Travel Security Procedures Affect Families

Scan or touch? Just in time for the busy holiday travel season, the Transportation Security Association has revised airport security procedures, requiring all passengers to choose between full-body image scans or pat-downs. The options have parents debating which is the lesser of two evils – exposing their tots to low levels of radiation, or allowing TSA workers to touch their lil ones.

Reports of kids' private parts being touched and frightened preschoolers, all in the name of security, have many parents hitting the road, rather than the skies this holiday season. Have your plans changed?
