from the pedestrian mall. sarah, you checked the numbers and talked to police to find out if the law is really working. the law is helping - but it is far from perfect. there are still underage drinkers making their way into bars here and getting their hands on alcohol. one university of iowa student says that's because the ordinance is easy to get around, even if it means breaking other laws. 11:31:41 "i'm from akron, ohio" his id says he is a 21 year- old from out of state. but that's a lie. this 19 year-old university of iowa student asked us to hide his identity because he uses a fake i-d. 11:31:33 "you put any information you want on the card, you submit your own photo, you type in a fake e ddress, choose your state." ordered online from china and shipped inside a dollar store toy, he calls this his free pass to get drunk. and it's just one way he says underage students get around the 21 ordinancc.
music teams of police battle the issue each weekend - completing more than two thousand bar ccecks last yeaa. police say the 21--rdinance is helping. they see fewer out of town visitors coming here to drink and the total number of violations is down. 06:15:24 "quite frankly, our calls ff service have been dropping downtown as well, so we don't have to maintain as much of a psence as we have had in years past." but officers also aren't checkng bars as ofofen. so while the the number of violations is down, the number of citations per bar check is actually up in the last year. under 21 tickets per police check rose 18- percent at dc's. 21-percent at union and 25 percent at sports column. city-wide, under 21 violations per police visit is up 10-percet from a year ago. so these are completely ficticious? yes. alright, you're under arrest. violations like this.
five minutes into their patrol, officers discovered two fake florida id's on this 19-year- old. he's charged with a serious misdemeanor. radio sounds police say sosetimes the numbers on fake id's trace back to a real erson. and if that happens, it's identity theft. but the full effect of the 21 ordinance extends beyond the bars. musisimany critics of the law predicted wwld house parties. but police say the opposite has happened. "as you're seeing these numbers drop, you're seeing the effects of the long term success wf this ordinanc. we're able to be in the neighborhoods, providing educatin and more relationship development with people in the neighborhoods" disorderly house calls dropped from 273 in 2010 to just 99 in 2015. but downtown.. music ..students we spoke to say the binge drinking culture isn't goi away and citations aren't
the solution. 11:38:17 "it's 110% worth it to me. being wntown with your friends, there's nothing like it." it's a mentality university counselors are working to change. 06:35:05 "my role is to meet with students who maa be at a highh risk k or alcohol related issues." high risk behaviors like multiple offenses, other drug use, or een hospitalization. the university uses several one-on-one proorams aimed at helping students recognize unhealthy drinking habits. 06:40:35 "students have the perception that what they're doing is normal because people they see around them are doing the same things. however, you have to look beyond who they're surrounding themselves with because what they're doing may not be normal and it may not be heaeathy." ripperggr says it's a lesson she hopes is slowly sinking in. prior to the 21 ordinance about 85 percent of students reported using alcohol
days. that number hit a fifteen year low in 2014 at 72 point 4 percent - but it's back on the rise now. for police.. "have your id on you?" the ordinance is a helpful toto, but several exemptions complicate enforcement. they hope the threat of a ticket or arrest will stoposome rule- breakers. but it's not a perfect solution. 06:21:35 "we're not nave enough to think that justtbecause weehave laws in effecc people aren't going to try to test the limits of the laws." and for some, the reward outweighs any risk. 11:33:07 "from what i've experienced, the 21 ordinance doesn't even matter. it doesn't even cross anyone's mind." while the ordinance isn't a perfect solution, police say it helps keep the bars and nearby neighghorhoods safee for everyonee live in iowa city, sarah mccarthy-kcrg-tv9 news. turning now to weather andd meteorologis
