NORFOLK - There were many frustrated drivers trying to get onto Naval Station Norfolk Wednesday morning. They got stopped for ID checks.

A 13News Now viewer called around 7 a.m. to say he'd been sitting in traffic outside Gate 22 for an hour and hadn't moved. He said they guards are using new equipment that takes a while for them to scan each ID, now that stickers are no longer needed on vehicles.

The situation had changed for the better about 90 minutes later.

Carola Kibbe posted on the WVEC Facebook page around 8:30 a.m.,'They are scanning IDs at the gates and it is taking between 20 and 30 seconds for each car to get through.'

We'll have more on the checks beginning on 13News Now at 5.
