Open Container Ticket Defense Lawyers

open_container03

You can drive with an open container of water, coffee, soda or energy drink. You can’t drive with an open container of alcohol or an open container of anything containing alcohol.

In Florida, driving with an open container of alcohol is illegal. Florida lawmakers have determined that an open container of alcohol in a moving motor vehicle makes it easier for the driver of that moving motor vehicle to drink and drive and potentially be driving under the influence (DUI). Drunk driving is illegal, and so is driving with an open container of alcohol that could lead to drunk driving.

Likewise, it is illegal to be stopped or parked in, or on, a motor vehicle with an open container of alcohol on a Florida road, highway, interstate or alley. If you have a container of alcohol in, or on, your car, it better be sealed or you could face a traffic citation for possession of an open container of alcohol.
