TSA Searches Valet Parked Cars

From WHEC via front page of DRUDGE

Rochester, N.Y. -- She says she had no warning that someone was going to search her car after she left to catch her flight. So the woman contacted News10NBC.

We found out it happened to her because she valet parked her car. Those are the only cars that get inspected.

So if security feels it is necessary to search some cars in the name of safety, why not search all of them?

Laurie Iacuzza walked to her waiting car at the Greater Rochester International Airport after returning from a trip and that's when she found it -- a notice saying her car was inspected after she left for her flight. She said, “I was furious. They never mentioned it to me when I booked the valet or when I picked up the car or when I dropped it off.”

Iacuzza's car was inspected by valet attendants on orders from the TSA. But why only valet parked cars? That's what News10NBC wanted to ask the TSA director about. We reached him by phone.

Does DP have a "Not-so Quick Link" category?

If so, maybe the poster can change the category to that.

Otherwise, thanks for all the quick links.

[Edit: Poster added a link. Thanks. :)]

A quick trip to the parking lot along with some scotch tape.

In fact, I am going to tape this onto one of the windows of my car :-)

They only searched the valet cars because they had the keys. No need to break in.
