TSA had a super busy year in 2013, screening 638,705,790 passengers - that's more than 1,700,000 per day. You may think they're after your water bottles, but truth is there are far bigger threats they're looking out for. Make life easier for yourself, fellow passengers and airport personnel by being mindful of the TSA's Prohibited Items list. False alarms and additional screenings can lead to closed checkpoints and terminals or delays. When you get to the TSA checkpoint, ditch the bottled water and double-check your pockets. If you've packed liquids in excess of 3 oz., don't throw a fit. Yes, I've seen grown women shed tears over seized beauty products. Oh, and once you're cleared, be sure to check around for your belongings. This year, travelers have left behind more 12,500 personal objects, including belts, cellphones, keys, sunglasses, driver's licenses and nearly 600 laptops.
