In regards to the tint shops vs. selling alcohol to minors, you have to think of it this way. Tinting a car is an infraction (one in which there is really no harm done). Selling alcohol to a minor is a Misdemeanor (and a crime in which there will be harm done to someone). I agree that it would br more efficient, but there isn't the man power to worry about a large-scale sting operation to bust tint shops.
