U.S. Loosen Ban On Liquids
September 26, 2006
Its been 6 weeks since Aug. 10 when carry-on items were banned aboard American, British, and many other airlines. Yesterday, officials decided to loosen the ban a bit by allowing passengers to carry lotions and gels onto airliners, but only in tiny containers of 3 ounces or less and only if they're in clear zip-top plastic bags. Also, starting today, air travelers also will be able to buy drinks or other liquids or gels at shops inside airport security checkpoints and carry them on board under partially relaxed anti-terror rules. Although they have every right to take precautions, especially after September 11, I think they overdid it when the measures they were taking and the only ones paying the price are the passengers. They need to loosen up a little bit, keep the restrictions but not as bad. {More}

    I really think they were going over board! For what they were trying to stop! They required a lot of liquid to do anything, but the complete ban on liquids was just over the top!

    And the US are just overboard on security overall!
