Your View: TSA adds to trials, tribulations of travel
By Bob Bingham
La Jolla residentThe trials and tribulations of travelers never cease, especially when dealing with airlines and security issues. We place a great deal of confidence in TSA’s capabilities. Unfortunately, there are instances that shatter one’s confidence in the performance of our front-line security inspectors.
My purpose in writing is to share my unfortunate experience with our TSA baggage inspectors. On Sept. 27, I flew from Fort Smith, Ark., to San Diego, with a plane change in Dallas-Fort Worth. My checked-in bag was packed by me and ultimately inspected by TSA as evidenced by notice of a baggage inspection card.
Much to my chagrin, my prescription medications had been taken. I was further shocked by the complicated process one has to go through in order to file a complaint against TSA. This includes having to pay a deposit before one’s complaint can be heard.
Just another aggravation that travelers have to endure.
