    I often see people drinking beer in their car at lunch (parked, not driving).
    Even as the driver as long as you're bellow the legal limit it's not illegal.
    I actually think the limit is stricted in some US states.It's almost zero in some states especially if you just got your licence.

    T'is no longer the case.
    It was legal in IN up until the mid to late 90s also. Then it was changed to iirc that the driver couldn't be drinking but passengers were allowed. Now...
    (1) A container possessed by a person, other than the operator of the motor vehicle, who is in the:

    (A) passenger compartment of a motor vehicle designed, maintained, or used primarily for the transportation of persons for compensation;  or

    (B) living quarters of a house coach or house trailer.

    (2) A container located in a fixed center console or other similar fixed compartment that is locked.

    (3) A container located:
    (A) behind the last upright seat;  or

    (B) in an area not normally occupied by a person;

    in a motor vehicle that is not equipped with a trunk.
    But it's only a class c infraction that is not a moving violation and with no points.

    We must keep expanding on laws until every citizen is in violation of something, it's the American way.

    IF you can stand in front of your house, and hit a two legged varmint standing at the end of your drive with a popular 9mm pistole, you live too close to town. And the subsequent concentration of aforementioned two legged varmints.

    It is good to have friends when you need them, even if they are only in your head
