It is about time. I saw a video shot on a party bus for a high school juniors 17th birthday. The driver asked the girl on video how old she was, she said 17. The video was full of the kids drinking alcohol, girls pole dancing and girls giving the teenage boys lap dances. For the clothes they had on they may have just been naked. These kids had bottles and bottles of hard alcohol. I know most of them has they are friends of my kids (and no, my kids did not go).
It is beyond me that this girls parents would think this is an acceptable function for a 17 yo birthday. I couldnt believe the bus operator allowed underage drinking. I think the fines should be much stiffer. i think the cops need to be actively looking for these buses especially during prom/ball season.
