So far, the only form of identification needed to board a plane was a drivers license, birth certificate, etc. Janine Puhak wrote a story for Fox News explaining why this is not the case for the future of identification. “As of Oct. 1, 2020, Grand Canyon state residents traveling out of Phoenix Sky Harbor International, Phoenix-Mesa-Gateway, Flagstaff, Tucson International and Yuma International airports will need to carry “Voluntary Travel IDs” or be grounded, AZ Family is reporting.” Some may think this is excessive for the amount of identification needed but here have been events that have occurred to make most to think otherwise. “Drunk British Airways flight attendant fined for being 10 times over the legal limit.” This event has also influenced the opinions of those that know of the change.

“Minors under age 18 will not be required to have the new ID if they are traveling with an adult who does.” With this kept in mind, there will be a backlash from many Arizona residents who work in a field that requires them to use flight as their main form of transportation. There will also be many questions as to why this form of identification has been put in place for those who are not under the influence.

“According to Az central, driver’s licenses are not compliant with the REAL ID Act passed by Congress in 2005, which amped up identification requirements for air travelers in the wake of 9/11. To compensate, the Arizona Legislature passed a law that said a license or cardholder must voluntarily take steps to secure a Voluntary Travel ID.” Many have tried to use counterfeit IDs and haven’t been caught, which is also a problem that this will try to solve over time if at all. Of course, past events such as 9/11 have kept the government on edge when it comes to travel and transportation. Though this is a prominent fact that can not be avoided, attacks on the country are but not limited to land attacks as well as the aerial attacks that have pursued by those already in the U.S. and those outside of it.

Despite all of the factors that may be negative to the public, the department of transportation has taken steps to make the new form of identification easily accessible. “MVD is making this process simple. Customers can go to ServiceArizona.com and make an office appointment. The website provides information about what documents customers should bring with them to meet the REAL ID requirements for the Voluntary Travel ID.” The process of obtaining the Voluntary travel ID is similar to the requirements of ordinary identification. “The Voluntary Travel ID’s cost $25 and are valid for eight years, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation. The new ID sets itself apart from the standard state driver’s license with a gold star in the top right corner.”

Conflict will occur throughout the process, but if the main goal can be achieved through it then there will most likely be further steps taken.
