Relaxing Regulations on Traveling with Liquid and Laptops

The TSA’s ever-changing rules of shoes on or off, liquids and more are confusing to even savvy travelers. The rule of thumb is to stay flexible to anything reasonable the TSA asks and avoid bringing anything obviously off-limits like sharp objects including nail clippers and nail files. However, the TSA is relaxing its hands-on stance on laptops and liquids with the help of new scanning machines.

 

With a focus on trimming down security lines, the TSA announced they’re working on installing 3-D carry-on bag scanning machines. The machines create 3-D images of objects like liquids and laptops, alleviating a traveler’s responsibility of removing them. Select airports around the country are already using the technology at some checkpoints including Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and Washington-Dulles International Airport, among others.

The TSA still employs rules on liquids and other items despite the addition of scanning machines. You can find the most current TSA rules and regulations here. It’s also unclear how much time the new machines will actually save travelers. At the very least, the machines should help keep travelers’ hands-free to focus on their baggage, children and flight paperwork. Regular travelers hoping to sail through security lines in roughly five minutes or less can use TSA PreCheck with a five-year, $85 membership. There’s no need to remove shoes, laptops, liquids, belts or lightweight jackets.
