"Spring break is just around the corner. As travelers prepare for any spring break travel with family and friends, it is important to take a few minutes to review the contents of luggage–it makes everyone safer.
The U.S. Department of Transportation’s (US DOT) Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) is responsible for regulating and ensuring the safe transportation of hazardous materials (HAZMAT) nationwide. To do so, PHMSA must work closely with its federal partners who help enforce HAZMAT regulations.For example, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) helps enforce HAZMAT regulations for air travel, and many popular spring break travel items have air travel restrictions under federal hazardous materials regulations. Items prohibited in both carry-on and checked baggage include camping fuel, beverages greater than 70 percent alcohol by volume, animal spray and repellent greater than four fluid ounces and fireworks. Items prohibited in checked baggage include battery-powered e-cigarettes, vaporizers, vape pens, atomizers and electronic nicotine delivery systems..."
