Nation Wide Crackdown on Underage Drinking

With the arrival of summer, states across the nation are taking precautionary measures to crackdown on underage drinking. One of several examples can be seen in Washington’s youth access compliance check program.

The Washington State Liquor Board has initiated a program to help prevent minors from drinking. They have selected a particularly interesting approach through employing the assistance of 18-21 year olds. The WSLCB refers to this demographic assisting them as “IA”s- Investigative Aides. They plant the IA’s throughout local bars to see how the bartender or bouncers respond to their  ID’s.

While this approach lauds creativity, why not use an ID scanner and parsing system that is 100% fool proof? IDScan.net has the most up to date technology in ID scanning. Our software reads ID’s from all 50 states as well as Canada and various Mexican forms of identification. Our software is user friendly and provides data that is 100% accurate. This way, you are always in compliance with federal and state laws and do not have to dedicate manpower that would be more beneficial elsewhere. You will never have to pay a compliance fine again!  Due to our 10+ years of experience, we know every issuers format and timeframe so you never have to worry about whether an ID is no longer valid. The proprietary algorithm we have built in our software notifies you as to whether the ID is authentic. We recommend checking out our software VeriScan Mobile https://idscan.net/wp/solutions/mobile/veriscan-mobile/.

Illinois driver’s license stations could close

Secretary of State Jesse White told lawmakers that nearly two dozen driver’s license stations will close unless the General Assembly extends a temporary tax increase.  If the income tax level falls from 5% to 3.75%, White will have to lay off 200 workers and reduce his office’s budget by about 10%.  The closures of the driver’s license stations would also create longer drive times and wait times for customers in rural areas trying to renew their driver’s license.

Florida driver’s license problem

The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) mistakenly sent several driver’s license suspensions to motorists without any issues.  If a driver received a notice, the DHSMV insists that they first check the status of their license through the DHSMV website.  This only applies to people who received a driver’s license suspension notice after March 31, 2014.
