Parents: Know the Law! – Underage Drinking
Do you know the underage drinking laws?
It doesn’t make you the “cool” parent to let your teen and their friends drink. Even if you’d rather know where they are and think it’s safer than being out. Familiarize yourself with these laws… What you don’t know could cost you.
It is ILLEGAL for anyone to give alcoholic beverages to anyone under the age of 21.
No, it doesn’t matter that it’s YOUR child. Parents providing alcoholic beverages to anyone under the age of 21 is ILLEGAL – including your own children. Any adult who hosts, or provides alcohol to minors can be HELD CRIMINALLY AND CIVILLY LIABLE!
Penalties may include: Driver license revoked for up to 1 year, 25+ hours of community service, and/or possible jail time!
Driving after consuming any amount of alcohol = IMMEDIATE REVOCATION OF LICENSE
It is ILLEGAL to purchase, possess, or consume alcohol!
Thinking about using that fake ID?
Is it really worth it for a buzz?
One year license revocation, $200 fine and get charged with a class 1 misdemeanor and a possible FELONY – not to mention additional fines, and court costs up to $500, community service and possible jail time.
