Hey guys, Im 18 years old, just got a drinking ticket last night at a concert, and had a few questions. The cop told me that if I dont tell my parents about the ticket that I can take care of everything and they wont have to even know about it. He said all I have to do is show up on my court date and do whatever the judge says( most likely 2 days of community service). I just got caught for consuming alcohol and being underage. Does all of this sound right? thanks in advance.

Who knows, the community service could be a rewarding experience?

Be thankful they're not telling your parents and putting you in jail, or something. What they're doing seems fine, you want to complain about it?

Don't drink underage next time.
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

It's 16 over here and if you're younger than 16 nobody is going to whine about it.

That's really stupid, a damn drinking ticket....

No it doesn't.

You might be able to get away with this quietly, or it might just come back to haunt you later.

If you have any sense, you'll talk to your parents about it. Coming clean about getting into trouble might be a minor set-back right now, but maintaining a dialog with your parents will be worth more, in the long run.


Then again, this might be too much of an adult concept for an 18 year old.

That sounds like a pretty good deal. Although you don't deserve it. An 18 year old should be allowed to drink, and the US law on it is ridiculous.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

I don't think he's complaining.

And everyone drinks when they're underage, don't give him that.

a drinking what?


you know like a parking ticket, he parked his drink in the handicapped spot...

Edit - You should tell your parents in any case, but go to court alone if you will, just to show your responsibility.

Point of fact is you are an adult now. You can move out on your own. Rent an apartment, buy a house whatever. The only thing you cannot do yet is legally drink.
The courts will treat you as an adult. They have no legal or moral responsibility to inform your parents. That responsibility fall to you. Remember you are now considered an "adult".How you fulfill your obligations and responsibilities is your business. The first step usually involves growing a set.

You don't have to tell your parents anything legally, once you're 18. Really, you are able to function on your own in society now. The only thing you can't do is drink, and rent a car. (Insurance reasons maybe?)

Next time, don't get caught

Yeah, Ireland's great


I think it's really weird that in some places e.g. Germany, you can drink at 16, and in America you have to be 21 in a lot of states, and that in some states you can't drink at all because prohibition is being enforced. It's madness.


But, yeah, just do the community service. You are counted as an adult everywhere in America at 18, even if you can't drink, you can vote at least, so you don't have to tell your parents anything - though saying you're doing community service of your own free will might make your parents all proud - they might even buy you a present! Though that would make you a criminal AND a liar....

What states enforce prohibition? I'm pretty no one in the US has done that since the 1920's.

Yank's drinking age looks more stupid when plenty of good countries in Europe (with low negative alchol related event rates) have a drinking age of 16.

That ticket systems sounds good though. Comply and it will work out better than if you act like a douche and don't.

Heh. In Canada you wouldn't have gotten a ticket, you would just have gotten your stuff dumped out. So easy-going...

With the drinking age in the US being 21, we can (at 18 years old) buy and smoke cigarettes, join the army and legally kill people, but can't get drunk on a Friday night.

....legally.

There are dry counties, but that only means you can't buy the alcohol in those counties. You are still allowed to drink in those counties.
