National Opt Out Day Protest A Potential Nightmare For Travelers

Upset with the new invasive airport scanners, which reveal the private parts of those who go through them, many are calling for a National Opt Out Day today. The day before Thanksgiving is one of – if not the busiest travel day of the year in America. And, what this Opt Out Day seeks to do is disrupt the “flow” at airports in order to prove their point. For those who are traveling today it would be wise to just bite the bullett and go through the scanners. It’s over and done with in 30 seconds, as opposed to a full pat-down, which an take up to 3 minutes. Do the math and you’re talking about waiting 6 times the amount of time in that line. If you’re willing to stick to your principles (boycotting the scanners) then by all means do so, but you’re going to be waiting a long time and also causing headaches for fellow passengers who don’t have a choice. That’s the travesty in all of this.
