Have you ever played the pick-up game at the airport?
No. Not that pick-up game.
We're talking about trying to pick-up your loved one who has just landed, straining your neck while you look for them amid of line of other travelers, all while a traffic officer is waving you along.
The NFTA is trying to take some of the stress out of what should be a much simpler process. It has installed numbered signs on the cement posts at the arrivals level that will allow travelers to give their exact location.
A recent 7 Eyewitness News I-Team investigation showed several instances, captured on camera, of cars illegally idling outside the arrival's entrance for 10 to nearly 20 minutes at a time.
Following our story, NFTA police agreed to make some changes, including stepping up patrols.
The traffic officers are hired by a third-party security company.
