In the state of Florida it is illegal to be driving with an open bottle of alcohol. It is illegal to have an open bottle of alcohol present even if the alcohol belongs to a passenger in the car. Since an officer cannot be sure whether you were or were not drinking, if you do have an open container it needs to be placed in the trunk.
