    Its not because of math, its because of fake ID's,  while its can be, or used to be easy to make a fake ID, most of them dont have the ability to do the bar codes or the magnetic strip, they would use real ID cars, but with fake info ( there are/were so many ways to do fake ID's,) on the face, but the bar code or magnetic strip would still contain the legal age , so that is one reason why the went to scanning or sliding it.
    Again, this is all based on the time that I had to worry about carding people( 2008-2010)
    And yes, is also another way for you to CYA and is proof that you did in fact card .

    States love to do stings( AZ does) to see if they are in fact carding , and I know in AZ, if you fail to card someone that is under age,  it was a $1k fine, they charged you with a misdemeanor and you lose your job , I dont recall what happens when you fail the stings, but it was just almost as bad, its been awhile since I last had to worry about carding people.
    And as its already been mentioned, each company has their own policy's on carding, and those ages to card are higher than 25, I know some go has high as 45 if I am recalling correctly, so yes, while it may be silly to card someone that is clearly north of being in their 20's, they are just doing their job, you know, that thing that pays their bills.

    Loctite R34 GTR
    This one took two kits to finish, and these are not easy kits to find a reasonable prices, long story short, I messed up with the decals , the second kit decals were showing their age, and did not react well to setting solution, so there are wrinkles in them.  I am just happy to be able to put this one behind now.

    I knew there was gonna be an interesting story to hiding the car, and I was not let down.  I am sure it drove the fleet manager nuts over time knowing that unit existed, but could never find it.

    How do you hide a car from fleet services?
