    Read the part "but not limited to..." in your definition of a road.
    Also how did the vehicle get to the parking lot? Beside the beers they were drinking how many other open empty containers were in the vehicle?

      I do not know where CCCSD is getting his information, but you were NOT arrested. Open container is a civil (not criminal) offense in Florida. It is no different than a speeding ticket. The ticket is a simple fine and does NOT require a court appearance. You can try and fight it, but you will most likely lose. And when you lose, you get court fines on top of the ticket and possibly a bigger fine (the court can up the amount).

      I am simply a LEO and Florida and not a lawyer, so this is not legal advice. However, my free advice is to pay the ticket and keep it in mind as a learning experience. It is non-moving citation, so there are no points on your license.

        At least this one is only a few months old.
