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. If you are ticketed for
this offense, you can choose to fight it. Like other offenses, when you
pay the fine you are admitting to the court that you are guilty of the
crime you have been accused of. You have a right to contest the charge
