225 restaurants and bars were surveyed or tested, if you will, and 106 served alcohol to someone under the age of 21. That's 47% who failed the test. Are you kidding me? This liquor commission sting operation proved that we have a serious issue here with either blatant disregard or apparent nonchalance to the laws of the land.
Last year, the State Liquor Commission handed out 329 citations to bars and restaurants for serving drinks to underage youths, about the same total it handed out in 2006. Maybe establishments aren't taking those citations seriously enough, as this latest sting/test effort over several months last year found a staggering 106 violators out of 225 places that serve alcohol.
