How to Stay in the Fast Lane

It's not very often that "Good Morning America" calls. So when producers contacted me last month to help them out with a segment about navigating airport security lines, I jumped at the chance.

As it turned out, the segment touched on two areas of interest for readers of this blog: getting through airport security lines AND driving in heavy road traffic.

My advice: Choose your security line carefully--try to avoid getting behind families with children, those with strollers or hard-to-remove lace-up shoes or boots. I also recommend staying away from international visitors holding foreign passports since they typically don't have the drill down like U.S.-based travelers and tend to slow down the lines.

The segment also helped road warriors answer an important question: Is it faster to stay in one lane during heavy freeway traffic or is it better to weave around slow movers in zigzag fashion? Check out the video to get the answer to that question!

    Driving in heavy traffic is bad, but driving with people that don't know how to drive is worse.Sometimes I think the states should make everyone (no matter age or length they have had their diver's license) redo driver training. At this point, such things as blinkers and letting someone into your lane are a rare polite act.
