Re "Carry-on crackdown: United enforces bag size" (Business, March 5): Enforcing carry-on restrictions is long over-due. Too many travelers are defiantly violating this policy, to the detriment of fellow travelers who comply with the rules. For the crack-down to work, the airlines will need to check the size of items to be placed in over-head bins, and the size of items which the traveler says will be stowed under the seat. Finally, flight attendants must monitor passengers during boarding to ensure that they don't place more than the one allotted bag in the over-head bin, regardless of their claim at check-in that one will go under the seat.
