trusted traveler
 n.— «The United States and its North American neighbors yesterday announced that they will set up a “trusted traveler” program for the continent by 2008, and will this year develop a plan to respond together to major terror attacks and other incidents. Trusted traveler programs enable people who provide biometric personal data, such as fingerprints or iris scans, pay a fee and submit to background checks to use special travel lanes at border crossings.» —“U.S. welcomes ‘trusted traveler’” by Shaun Waterman Washington Times (D.C.) June 28, 2005.
