Do you know who will enforce the law? That is the biggest downfall of these laws. The police are busy with much more “harmful” activities. We couldn’t get the support of the health dept in PA. And none of these salons are inspected for cleanliness hence the chance of spread of infections, yuck!
I don’t know for certain; but, I would suspect it would be similar to enforcing the laws about selling alcohol or tobacco to minors – the places of business have to check IDs, etc…. and sometimes perhaps the village police departments do spot-check sting operations to ensure compliance.
I hope so because normally the tanning salons hire teens to run their business and then of course they let their friends in without age I.D. The bigger issue may be in the unsupervised tanning beds on college campuses at local apartment complexes. The best solution is peer pressure like smoking, but we’ve still failed in that hazardous habit too.
