The TSA Is Testing New Technology That Could Make Airport Security Less Stressful

Let’s face it: no one enjoys making the long journey through airport security. While most of us accept standard security procedures as a necessary means of guaranteeing safety for travelers, there’s nothing more stress-inducing than scrambling to remove your shoes, arranging items in bins, and carefully following the directions of TSA agents. Luckily, a new technology is in its testing phase at Las Vegas’ McCarran International Airport, and this system could remove much of the headache associated with venturing through security.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
