Local bars have recently cracked down on fake ID use, with many Broadway establishments requesting multiple forms of identification before one is allowed to enter.
According to a 2013 poll, a quarter of 1,000 students surveyed used a fake ID to obtain alcohol before they turned 21. The more frequently the respondents used fake IDs, the more they drank, developing unhealthy drinking habits early.
In Texas, possessing a fake driver’s license used to misrepresent age is a Class C misdemeanor and can lead to a $500 fine. If the altered license has a fake identification or belongs to someone else, the holder can face a Class A misdemeanor, up to a $2,000 fine and jail time.
In this confidential poll, tell us if you have ever used a fake ID, and if so, what kind.
