What a tangled little story this is. It begins with a strange but seemingly confirmed story about how TSA [2] agents are now searching valet-parked cars parked at airports.

We write “strange” because, well, that’s a very new thing TSA would be doing. You’d think they would have told have told someone in advance. Yet it’s also “seemingly confirmed” because a local news station in New York went to Greater Rochester International Airport, where the car searches occurred, and found a bunch of evidence. [3]

The NBC affiliate found a valet company with a (maybe brand new) sign that saying cars could be searched under TSA regulations. Then they got a valet driver to talk about the practice. They they got a TSA official to explain that valet-parked cars were uniquely subject to search – as opposed to all other cars – because they sit in front of the terminals for so long. Check out the clip embedded below. Seems pretty definitive.

Except then the TSA blog issued a flat out denial [4]: “TSA officers are not inspecting cars or mandating that they be searched.”
