Just when you thought the worst of the nation state law enforcement has to offer is over, the same “idea police” want to give you another and take it one step further, in an attempt to stifle free speech and get you to break the law
This is just like their and, as usual, you’re either with us or against us.
In California’s open container law in Effect for the last month, the Paper San Diego declares the Subsequent:
It’s illegal to drink in a closed car and (stansbury) had passed a similar law in Berkeley in 1990. In response, the San Diego City Attorney’s office drafted its own version, with varying restrictions. They include allowing open containers in an unobstructed window of the car, the passenger in the front seat of the car can drink alcohol, the driver is also allowed to drink alcohol and so is the driver in the rear seat. Of course, not all of these laws apply to every driver and the agency determined that drunk driving may take place without the presence of any of these provisions.
According to some law enforcement experts, this state law may be limited. However, most other observers believe the law is vague and, if implemented, may turn out to be an effective weapon against drunken driving.
To protect us, the government must play by the regulations and they are quite clear concerning the situation it generates to all motorists. Imagine if somebody who is also a person in the front seat and also drives at the back seat beverage? The most moderate of individuals must agree that it is a lousy situation.
Now we have more evidence from California that the open container law is actually driving people to drink and drive. The State had to realize how bad the situation would become if we kept criminalizing every act of drunkenness while drunk and not just while being drunk.
The same law school addendum in California’s Basic Speed Law says that it is illegal to be driving below the speed limit. The law school addendum at the University of California at Irvine says that it is illegal to drive a car above the speed limit.
For this one the addendum of the open container law says that it is illegal to be drinking in the front seat or in the backseat of the car when the passenger in the front seat has been drinking. It also says that it is illegal to drink alcohol in a car unless there is an unobstructed window. Interestingly, it also says that if alcohol is consumed in the backseat, the driver must be able to see what is going on outside the car.
One of the added provisions that comes from California’s law school addendum is the requirement that if the windshield wipers are broken, a warning must be exhibited. One of the main purposes of these warning stickers is to prevent people from breaking the law. By requiring a warning to be displayed when a driver breaks a windshield wiper, it will help to prevent many future violations.
In addition to the warnings, the law school addendum at UC Irvine says that it is illegal to drink alcohol while operating a bicycle. Although, the law school addendum at UC Davis adds an exception, it does not change the fact that the California law says that it is illegal to consume alcohol on a bicycle.
Therefore, in essence, the law school addendum in Basic Speed Law says that it is illegal to consume alcohol in a car, boat, train, bus, or other motor vehicle, unless there is an unobstructed window. It is illegal to consume alcohol in a car, boat, train, bus, or other motor vehicle, unless there is an unobstructed window.
This may seem to be as if it is simply a simple variation of the basic speed law, but it is anything but. When a law enforcement official first viewed the law school addendum in Basic Speed Law, he did not even know that the passengers in the front seat and in the back seats of the car could drink alcohol; he did not know that there was to be a warning sticker required for a driver to break a windshield wiper; and he did not know that he could not drink alcohol in a car unless there was an unobstructed window.
