DMV Begins Campaign Against Fake IDs at Summer Concerts

  • / Updated:
  • Staff Report 

The New York State Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is stepping up efforts to prevent underage drinking at concert venues this summer by checking for fake IDs.

As part of the annual Operation Prevent initiative, DMV investigators, along with State Liquor Authority, State Police, State Park Police, and local law enforcement, will patrol venues like Saratoga Performing Arts Center and Jones Beach Theater. If underage individuals are caught with fake IDs, they could face tickets and have their licenses suspended for at least 90 days.

“Summer concerts are a great way to enjoy the season, but underage drinking can lead to tragic accidents,” said DMV Commissioner Mark J.F. Schroeder. Last year, the initiative resulted in 312 citations and 389 confiscated fake IDs.
