Careless travelers are giving even more funding to the Transportation Security Administration by leaving behind loose change at security checkpoints.
The TSA collected more than $867,812.39 in change from forgetful passengers last year, besting its previous record of $765,759 collected in 2015.
Since 2008, TSA's total coin collection tab has risen to a staggering $5.1 million.
A 2005 federal law grants the TSA to keep any unclaimed monies, or other items for that matter, and transfer it to a special fund for enhancing security operations at airports.
Each year since 2008, the amount of money left behind and unclaimed by passengers has increased.
