NYS cracks down on fake IDs at concerts

  • Staff Report 

The New York State DMV is teaming up with other agencies to prevent underage drinking at concerts this summer. Officials will check for fake IDs at venues like SPAC, Jones Beach, and Darien Lake.

This effort, known as Operation Prevent, includes investigators from the DMV, State Liquor Authority, State Police, and local law enforcement. “We want everyone to enjoy summer concerts safely,” said DMV Commissioner Mark J.F. Schroeder. Last year, 312 people were cited for using fake IDs, and 389 fake IDs were seized.

If caught with a fake ID, those under 21 can face ticketing and a license suspension of 90 days to a year. The campaign aims to ensure a safe and enjoyable summer for all New Yorkers.
