It can be illegal for a bar to serve a drink to young adults in Utah.

The violation comes when the bar fails to run an electronic scanner on driver licenses of anyone who looks 35 years old or younger. The penalty for failing to electronically verify licenses is akin to serving alcohol to a minor.

Peggy Bowen, owner of Chuckles Lounge in Salt Lake City, said her bartender asked three young adults, all older than 21, to show their driver licenses, but because the club did not use its electronic device, “we were told we broke the law.”

The club regularly uses an electronic scanning device, she said. But on Feb. 18, the bartender only checked the licenses visually.

“I don’t like it; I think it’s unfair, but I don’t have the money to fight this,” said Bowen. “Now everyone who looks under 60 gets their licenses scanned.”
