City Open Container Law Inadvertently Bans Open Food & Drinks In Vehicles

April 26, 2005

FORT WAYNE, IN — There's a problem with the open-container law in Fort Wayne, according to the Associated Press. Officials have discovered that the ordinance bans all open containers in vehicles – not just containers of alcohol. That means an open can of soda, or even an open bag of chips in the car, is technically against the law, and could be subject to a $50 fine. City attorneys have brought the matter to the attention of the City Council, which voted on April 19 to fix the law, added the Associated Press.
