BORDER-LONGER LINES
(2007-09-04)
(wgvu) - LONGER LINES ARE BECOMING MORE COMMON AT U.S. BORDER CROSSINGS.
STEPPED-UP INSPECTIONS AT THE CANADIAN AND MEXICAN BORDERS HAVE
LED TO LINES NEARLY AS LONG AS THEY WERE AFTER SEPTEMBER 11TH.
THE WAIT TO CROSS BECAME SO LONG RECENTLY AT THE BLUE WATER
BRIDGE THAT THE ONTARIO TRANSPORTATION MINISTRY SET UP PORTABLE
TOILETS ALONG THE ROAD.
AVERAGE TOTAL CROSSING TIMES HAVE ALSO INCREASED AT THE DETROIT
WINDSOR TUNNEL.
BORDER RESIDENTS AND BUSINESSES BLAME NEW RULES THAT REQUIRE
U.S. CITIZENS TO SHOW DRIVER'S LICENSES, PASSPORTS OR OTHER PHOTO
ID. THEY SAY THERE IS NOT ENOUGH STAFF TO INSPECT THE DOCUMENTS,
COLLECT INFORMATION AND DO ADDITIONAL VEHICLE CHECKS.
