Flying for the fences

California airports seem to have a security problem – but it’s not one that involves the TSA or pat downs. It’s something simpler: fences.

According to the San Jose Mercury News, there have been at least 82 breaches of California airport fences between 2004 and 2015.

Thankfully, none of these were terrorism attempts. They were mostly people taking shortcuts, trying to get on flights, or crashing through the fence in vehicles. These breaches were mostly because all of the fences are not constantly patrolled.

The airport with the most breaches is San Francisco International with 37, then Los Angeles with 24, San Jose with 18 and San Diego with three.

If times are tough and flights too expensive, climbing the fence might be the way to go.
