I know it’s illegal, but I had an encounter with a gentleman last night over the issue.
Pick up was at a dive bar. I see someone approaching my car with a beer bottle in hand so I don’t unlock the doors. He knocks on my window and says “You uber?” And I said “yes, is the bottle opened?”. He replies “yes, but I only live down the street.”. So I told him that it is against the law for there to be an open container in the vehicle, but I would be happy to wait for him to finish his beer. He says that he never had an issue before and other drivers allowed him to drink.
I then repeated myself and the dude ended up cussing me out and I ended up getting paid for parking my car for 5 minutes.
What say you?
