Alcoholic Beverage Control spokesman John Carr says part of their work will be going after bartenders and liquor store clerks who sell to minors.    

"We are sending out underage decoys and we’re doing that in a number of communities up and down the state, working with local law enforcement. We’ve had a very aggressive campaign in the last year."

He says in 2004, nearly half of all alcohol-related traffic fatalities in California, involved drivers under the age of 21.
