Daily Talker: ID Badge For Disabled Flyers?

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?
