Stricker Passport Law Regulations....

Starting yesterday January 23, 2007. New government regulations require air travelers flying into the US to show a passport, including American citizens and citizens of Canada, Mexico and Bermuda. It makes me wonder what took so long. Every since 9/11 the security is way tighter than before. Everything was too relaxed before then is my thought. Before you use to could use your birth certificate or driver's license. Just imagine how packed the post offices are going to be now, Or the people who planned a trip within the next few weeks, but now have to get a passport. The normal is 4 to 6 weeks...What are you thought with this new regulations?

Well, I don't plan to travel that far in the near future, so I don't think that it's going to affect me. But I think that it's a good thing, really. You're right, in my eyes, to say that the security was too laz in the first place, and it's good that there are stricter rules in place now. I don't mind the idea of getting myself a passport when and if I do need to travel. I just feel safer knowing that others will have to have one. It seems like a good idea, to me.
