comment Speeding tickets in the US (CA, AZ, NV)
Traffic cameras in the US that automatically ticket are usually for illegally using toll/pay lanes or running a "red-light" or not coming to a complete stop before turning right on a red light, not for general speeding.

You can use apps on cell (smart) phones as long as the phone itself is in "airplane mode."

comment Dress code for tech business training in California
@neubert I think that's a booth at a university's career fair, not at an industry conference. Slightly different context...!

comment How many jetways are used in Frankfurt to deplane Boeing 747-400
Is the connection on the same airline or not plus is it considered one trip, and is it a domestic or international connection?

comment Why does it take so long to check in at the airport?
I definitely think it's software-related and some airlines have better designed ones than the others.

comment International travel with parrots
Don't forget to look at rodent or other small animal cages as a possibility. I used a mouse cage to transport a finch across the US (by car) and as a general transport cage.

In the US at least, minors are not allowed to sit in the Emergency Exit rows--they don't have the strength to open the doors, for one reason.

comment Passport expired while outside the US
Chasing through the pages, they do say that the proof of citizenship list is the same (that is, you can use your expired passport) but to check with the embassy that you plan to use. Here's Tijuana's.

comment Bringing laptop with US keyboard layout back into the UK
Some countries' Customs used to let you register high value goods, but I haven't been able to find anything for the UK.

comment Bringing laptop with US keyboard layout back into the UK
Have your company prepare a paper that lists the computer, asset number, serial number etc. Does the UK have the same type of certification as a US notary public? Or put it in a sealed envelope, mail it (to get a dated postmark) to yourself, and bring it with you. Any questions, have them open it!

@jpatokal The link includes information about temporarily importing goods--they have to be for noncommercial use (as I stated).

@RoflcoptrException I meant high end GPS equipment rather than phone GPS devices--will revise my answer!

US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) suggest that the letter be notarized.

comment Can you freeze liquids to pass security checks?
My partner was told by TSA that he could have kept his Philly cream cheese in his carry-on IF it had been frozen. He was flying LAX-ATL-JHB.

comment Impact of not having life insurance on sponsoring B2 VISA for parents?
Form asks about life insurance and its cash value. Don't worry about it; just use zero (or whatever the instructions say to do). Not everyone has life insurance.

comment What artsy/museumy/culturalish stuff is there to do in Indianapolis?
Do you have car access? Like planes? There's a huge aviation museum at Wright-Patterson AFB near Dayton (2 hrs away).

comment Are there hotels where children are not allowed?
I think you're right; that it's only for permanent housing ("family status"), but it would likely still cause an uproar if the hotel wasn't a very high-end resort or a tiny B&B.
