First of all, it's not store policy. It is a Somerset city ordinance to check everyone's ID. Second, they don't use any info from your license other than your birthday and that it is a VALID ID card. You people are flipping idiots. If you don't want to show your ID, then don't! Go buy a soda and leave the overworked, underpaid cashier the hell alone!!!

Last ten times I've bought beer at Kroger or a gas station they never scan your ID. They check you ID visually, sometimes they ask for me to take it out of wallet, but they have stopped scanning them in the machine.

Good. They've been checking IDs visually for decades, no reason to get computers involved in something so simple.

This. Kroger never scans them anymore. I noticed when I was at Wildcat Liquor tonight they scanned some peoples' IDs, others they just looked at.

Just wondering what everyone else thinks about the stores now scanning your drivers license? I'm pretty sure they can look at the date i was born to see my age or look at all my gray hair. What information are they obtaining? Is it legal? Is it mandatory now?
It's to stop their flunkie employees from continuing to sell beer and cigs to their underage friends. Instead of hiring older, more mature (demanding a higher pay rate) employees. speedway claims not to be able to "key in info", yet just yesterday I watched them key in info from a Fla lic. Employees (hourly and the store manager) told me just the day before that it is impossible for them to do so, and yet I witnessed this 24 hours later, by the same employee that gave me a speech about how she's just doing her job, do "The Impossible". How lame is it that a company would continue to hire people that can NOT do a simple job. Proper training, and a signed waiver ((stating that if Beer/Cigs are sold to an underage person.... the employee will forfiet last paycheck and any claim to unemployment) with undisputable proof)).
If these asshats want their min wage pay to go to $15.00 per hour, then they need to be accountable for their actions. People across this country are paid to do a job, and will loose their job if they dont preform as expected. Why should a company "Dumb" things down instead of training their employees???
