Four pax tried to get in my car ALL with open containers. Going from Glenridge Connector to the Buckhead Bars. I politely told them that is not allowed.

"Other drivers allow it", "you must be new", etc...we went on our way with some grumbling. I know that in GA only the possessing passenger(s) is cited; however, I am strict about no open containers. Even if a cop pulls us over and I am arrested that is time that I am making $$ because of turd faced pax.

Firstly, It really pisses me off how easily these people think they can do whatever the **** they please in somebody else's car. Secondly, as a black dude, I make a point to limit my encounters with police at all costs.

Do you guys allow open containers in your car and if not how do you deal with it?

Open containers as in alcohol? Never. If I even suspect it's alcohol then no. Absolutely no liquids of any kind during drunk hours. Daytime I may allow a fountain soda with lid or coffee with lid if they ask. Anything with no lid forget it.

If they protest at all I cancel. Usually I kick them out and wait what's left of 5 mins and cancel. I'll argue with them a minute or two just to run the clock down.

Two had beer bottles and the others had cups of what was probably liquid. Next time, I think I am just gonna cancel and take the $5. I do not get why these people even think it is OK to put another person's car, license, and livelihood at risk so they can save $7 on a bar tab. People got to grow up.

It depends on the time and passengers. Frat boys at 2am don't get to drink in my car, but couples on their way to dinner do. It isn't really illegal in GA, and if a cop decides it is, then it's the Pax getting the tickets.

If people aren't too drunk to control themselves and are discrete about it, I go ahead and let them enjoy their pre-bar/dinner drink.

I do not have a problem with the container itself, I really really do not want any interaction with a cop. Lest I end up black dude dead.

There is no way to explain that with having a Conversation, so I just take my lumps as a Party Pooper.

I live in Dekalb county, no games are allowed when it comes to open containers. When I did drive, no one have the gall to bring an open container in my car. Plus I didn't drive after the sun went down anyway. I drove only during the day at Atlantic Station. No drunks in my car ever

No drinks in my car ever. Not even coffee. I'm not cleaning up your spilled mess in my car. Lots of times I don't even have the conversation with them. If they approach my car with food or drinks in their hand, I drive away and cancel. I'm so over this shit!
