Ron asked: A cyclist picks up an empty (hence, open) beer can or bottle for whatever reason, and sticks it in a rear jersey pocket. Would this constitute a violation of Florida’s open container Law?
The definition in the statute is self-explanatory. The intent is obviously to prohibit drivers from consuming alcoholic beverages while driving.
s. 316.1936 – Possession of Open Containers of Alcoholic Beverages in Vehicles Prohibited; Penalties
(1) As used in this section, the term:
(a) “Open container” means any container of alcoholic beverage which is immediately capable of being consumed from, or the seal of which has been broken.
