As the Opt Out and Film campaign gets underway this week, research highlighted by Bloomberg Businessweek has uncovered the fact that TSA security procedures are actually killing Americans in greater numbers than terrorists could dream of, by resulting in more people dying in car accidents because of their refusal to fly.
“There is lethal collateral damage associated with all this spending on airline security—namely, the inconvenience of air travel is pushing more people onto the roads,” writes Charles Kenny.
Kenny slams the federal agency for failing to catch a single terrorist, noting that “The TSA’s major role appears to be to make plane trips more unpleasant.”
He points to studies we have highlighted before by John Mueller and Mark Stewart of Ohio State and the University of Newcastle, showing that the threat posed by terrorist is akin to the threat posed by bathtubs, accident-causing deer and bee stings.
