CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - It's no secret that traveling - especially flying- can be a headache. But did you know that in 2015, only two percent of travelers had to wait more than 20 minutes to get through airport security?
But many travelers say they have waiting in a TSA security checkpoint for more than 30 minutes. TSA reports they are tightening their security after several terror attacks overseas.
