Passengers leave behind over $400,000 in loose change at U.S. security checkpoints annually

If America’s airports had a penny for every rushed passenger through security, they wouldn’t be near as pleased as they are today.

The Transportation Security Administration says they’ve collected about $400,000 in abandoned change from passengers emptying their pockets through security checkpoints.
That figure was actually down this year in comparison to 2010’s forgotten sum of $409,085.56.
