quote from Jim Luff
"I had to get a letter from the Chief of the public utilities commission that ruled we COULD allow alcohol consumption in vans as a licensed charter party carrier. He even cited the California Vehicle Code that makes it legal. We copied this, laminated it and placed it in the door pockets of our vans "just in case"."
Jim, or anyone who knows, what is that California Code? I've always been curious as to what the exact law on drinking in a limo or bus is.
1. I assume you can drink in the back of a limo or bus, but what about the front passenger seat?
2. What about a sedan? I assume they can drink in the back, but what about the front? A taxi cab also.
A gypsy sedan guy I know just got busted for open container and he was asking me about it. I told him I wasn't sure, but I was pretty sure that passengers were allowed to drink. But that he was screwed because he doesn't have a TCP license. Looking back, I doubt he was that ignorant. He was probably hoping I would help him out in court with my license(fat chance).
Also, I know an anal driver that won't let passengers(usually parents or teachers) sit up front(when seat is available) because he says it's illegal. I've been on him for years on this, but he won't admit he's wrong until I prove it.
3. Can a passenger sit in the front passenger seat?(I'd bet my life on it but need proof)
