    One can only hope because it makes perfect sense and would finally be a good use of our federal dollars. I won't hold my breath though :rolleyes:

    i would not like to add a shoe scanner because it is another step to wait for and needless expense. Now many customers can remover their shoes at once. With the scanner, you would have to wait your turn for the shoe scanner and then for the body scanner. Not everyone will step quickly into the scanner. Some will be slow, some will stumble. Adding another step would add more time to the process.

    My initial reaction is not favorable for the reasons sunseeker points out - adding another step (pun intended) would add more time to the process.

    Well the extra step is there as it is now with having to remove, go through, and then stop to put your shoes on again. Of course, Ben Gurion is much more organized so perhaps that is why it doesn't interrupt the flow there.

    Maybe the TSA will be dissolved in the next decade and no one will care about dangerous shoes.

    Seriously, I can't see this in airports in the US for fear of liability when people hurt themselves by missing the step or falling down. :D

    At least we know TSA has been testing it.

    Not sure a three year-old YouTube video is solid basis that the TSA would embrace this.
