On November 27, 2012, travel company Surf Patch responds to an Examiner article by Charlzetta Driver about a woman driving her car onto an airport runway, breaching security, hindering passengers ability to fly clear of danger at the airport.
According to the Examiner article, “Koko Nicole Anderson was arrested Thursday night after ramming her car through the gates of Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport runway.” The article states that Anderson was arrested on November 18, and was confirmed by her mother, Bebe Anderson, to have bipolar disorder which makes her act erratic if not on medication. Despite questions of Anderson’s actions, the articles main question is “How does airport security continue to get breached?”
According to the article, “This incident is one of many that have occurred just in the past year.” The article mentions some of the incidents as people climbing airport fences without setting off alarms, a car ramming through an airports fence, and a drunk driver speeding down the runway. The article states since 9/11 tons of money has been spent on beefing up airport security, yet incidents such as these still occur.
Travel company Surf Patch worries about the passengers safety, and ability to fly clear of danger at the airport. World traveler Takara Licausi stated, “The constant breaching of airport security heard about in the news is simply unacceptable. As a frequent traveler, I always want to feel comfortable in the airport and on the plane, and stories like these do not make me feel safe.”
