If I am 18 and driving my parents vehicles, is it legal for there to be sealed bottles of alcohol in the trunk?
Question Details: Also, what if a person is 21 in the vehicle?
It is technically legal for there to be sealed bottles of alcohol in the trunk: thus under 21 cannot buy alcohol, or legally consume it in the vast majority of cases; and no one may drive drunk; but there is no against an underage driver having alcohol in the trunk of a car he is borrowing. That said, it would be better to not have it in the trunk: if stopped, a police officer may assume it's yours, and why be in the position of having to possibly deal with charges? Even if you'd win in the end, it's still an expense and a hassle.
Hello. I do not know of a Minnesota law prohibiting carrying sealed bottles of liquor in a vehicle trunk while you drive that car. I urge you that it is unwise to do so, and you ought to remove those bottles prior to you driving the car. Should you need attorney advice: Some attorneys, myself included, are available seven days for emergency legal needs. Some attorneys, myself included, will confer at no charge, for free; then, if legal work is performed, some attorneys, myself included, will provide a reduced fee for need. All the best.
