We've all been stuck behind one: the traveler at airport security with liquids packed in his suitcase, an ID buried in his pockets (overflowing with change) and no clue (or care) that he's keeping you and everyone else from moving through security faster. Don't be that guy. Save yourself - and others - from unnecessary delays at the airport by learning a few simple strategies for getting through airport security lines faster.

1. Dress for Travel
1. 穿旅行装(而不是正装)

Wear slip-on shoes if possible, and avoid items with metal buckles and buttons. Don't head to the checkpoint with lots of layers on; remove jackets/bulky sweaters early in the security line. Be sure to empty pockets of keys, phones and change before you get to the x-ray machine.

2. Pack Smart
2. 在打包上多花些时间

Know what you can (and can't) carry onboard by making yourself familiar with TSA regulations. Layer items neatly in your suitcase and keep your plastic bag of toiletries/liquids in an outer pocket for easy access at the checkpoint.

3. Get a Security-Friendly Laptop Bag
3. 带一个便于安检的电脑包。

Stop fumbling with your computer at the checkpoint with a new, security-approved laptop bag. The Transportation Security Administration is now allowing business travelers toting bags that meet new "checkpoint friendly" standards to leave their laptops in their bags through security.

4. Avoid Peak Travel Times
4. 避开旅行高峰期

Sometimes unavoidable, but if you can plan your travels to avoid the peak airport times (6:30-9:30 AM and 3:30-7:30 PM), your chances of getting through security faster will improve. Some times of year - holidays, spring break season, special sporting events - will always be bad, so prepare yourself for the agitation ahead of time.
有时候是不可避免的,如果你计划出行,那么就要避开机场高峰期(早上6:30 -- 9:30,下午3:30 -- 7:30),这样你快速通过安检的几率才会提高。一年中的某些时段,如节日,春季休息时段,特别的体育活动等,常常都不如人意,所以要做好人潮涌动的心理准备吧。
