Summer travel season is upon us.  And we would all love to zip through airport security.

It turns out some people may have figured out a way to do just that.  Airports report the number of people using wheelchairs is up….way up in some cases.

WBZ’s Michelle Roberts found some people believe able-bodied passengers are playing the system to beat the long lines at security.  Airlines are required by law to help any passengers that ask for assistance.

Some international airports use a system where passengers have a special pass which identifies them as disabled.  Should airports in the US do the same?  What can they do to cut down on people abusing the system?

Watch Michelle’s story here:
