I was there in '08 and '09, and Narita airport seemed much more lax than any of the 4 US airports I went through to get there and back (Cleveland, Newark, Minneapolis, and Salt Lake City). On the way back my last time visiting, I walked right through the metal detector with my belt on in Narita and was fine. When I walked through the metal detector in Minneapolis with the exact same stuff (everything out of my pockets, only my belt which I assumed was fine from before), the same belt set off the metal detector and I had to remove it.
On the whole, however, I was rather pleased with the speed and courtesy afforded to the customers on both sides of the Pacific, and am glad that I haven't been witness to any of these airport horror stories that have come about lately. I just try to be courteous and patient with the people running the airport, and they seem to extend the same back to me.

That is ridiculous. That's about the fastest over the speed limit I go (maybe 28 in a 25 from a % view), and I drive 45 in 45, 65 on 65mph freeway. Pretty much as slow as you can go without being below the limit.
Being able to get a speeding ticket for that is not right. If you get a ticket for that, it had better be no point on your license and a total fine of ~$10.

Oh, they still have plenty of time to overreact on him, just that the police won't be involved.
They fire continuously and they move, unlike this system.
