Arkansas Transportation Tightening in Light of British Terror

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Transportation security officials say random vehicle inspections will start tomorrow at Little Rock National Airport.

The airport checked in-bound vehicles after the 2001 terror attacks, but that program eventually came to an end.  Now, in light of attempted bombings in London and Glasgow, Scottland, the Transportation Security Agency says it will have a checkpoint set up as vehicles at Little Rock's airport turn in front of the terminal building.

Airport officials say the checkpoint may cause delays and is advising travelers to allow extra time.

Little Rock national officials say they expect 34,242 travelers to pass through the airport over the six-day July 4 period.  That's up from 32,000 travelers a year ago.
