Underage Drinking Laws
Although the legal drinking age for the U.S. is 21 years old, underage drinking laws may still vary from state to state. This article discusses effective underage drinking laws, some statistics involving underage drinking laws, and how underage drinking may affect you.
An important part of the reduction in fatal crashes involving teenagers - especially drunk teenagers, has been the adoption of 21 as the legal drinking age in all states in the United States of America. Other underage drinking laws differ from state to state, but all states in the Union have adopted 21 as the minimum legal age for the consumption of alcohol. This move has helped reduce the deaths related to driving for teenagers, although it has not completely done away with deaths.
Effective underage drinking laws
One of the most effective laws, according to the study, is the “use and lose” law. This law basically revokes a teen’s driver’s license if he or she is caught use alcohol while underage. This is a temporary suspension of the driver’s license that becomes progressively harsh if teens are caught using alcohol while underage multiple times. A 5% decrease in fatal crashes involving underage drinking is seen in the states that do have use and lose laws, as opposed to the 15 states that do not have this laws.
