Report: Travelers Would Feel More Secure if IDs Scanned by Airport Security
January 29, 2010
A public opinion survey conducted by The Investor Relations Group (IRG) of New York has found support for ID scanning at airport security checkpoints. Out of a total of 766 randomly selected people in New York City, nearly 86 percent said that they would feel more secure if all air travelers' IDs were scanned using additional technology. An overwhelming number of those individuals surveyed indicated a desire to have their identification screened by additional technology, in order to further prove their identity and prevent individuals with false identification from passing through security.
