Ask a Cop: Closed Containers of Alcohol in Vehicles?

Question: What is the law regarding closed containers of alcohol in vehicles? Must the alcohol be placed in the trunk or back seat-- or does it not matter where it's kept, as long as the alcohol is in a closed container?

Answer: As long as the person in possession of the alcohol is of legal age, a closed container of alcohol may be anywhere inside a vehicle to be transported. There are no restrictions.
