Voluntary Security Car Inspections

Via Schneier on Security -

What could possibly be the point of this?
Cars heading to Austin-Bergstrom International Airport will see random, voluntary inspections Monday.

The searches are part of an increase in security at the airport.

It's a joint operation between the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Austin Police, and airport security.

The enhancements are not a response to specific threats, and the security level has not changed.

Officials say the searches are voluntary and drivers can opt out if they want.
Training? Reassuring a jittery public? Looking busy? This can't possibly be done for security reasons.
