The Boise Police say area businesses are getting better about refusing to sell alcohol to minors; the BPD's latest alcohol compliance check yielded just a 7 percent failure rate, down from 20 percent in checks in late August and late September. Of 59 businesses checked over the weekend, only four failed, BPD reports, by selling alcohol to 18- or 19-year-olds who offered their real Idaho state I.D. Violations can bring fines and business license suspensions.
