(WFRV) – Wisconsin recently passed a law that allows for mixed drinks and glasses of wine to be sold to-go, but the Wisconsin State Patrol is reminding motorists of something that is still illegal.
With Memorial Day weekend approaching, Wisconsin State Patrol is mentioning that it is still illegal to have any bottle or receptacle in a motor vehicle containing alcoholic beverages under the following conditions:
- If the bottle or receptacle has been opened
- The seal has been broken
- The contents of the bottle or receptacle have been partially removed or released
Gov. Tony Evers signed the bill on March 26 as the bill won bipartisan approval in the Legislature. The law allows for mixed drinks and glasses of wine to be sold to-go as long as they have tamper-evident seals.
With the holiday weekend nearing the Wisconsin State Patrol posted on Facebook as a friendly reminder to motorists who plan on carrying it in their vehicle.
