New Ordinance Restricting Alcohol Consumption on Entertainment Transportation Vehicles Takes Effect

A new Metro ordinance prohibiting the possession/consumption of open containers of alcohol, including beer, in unenclosed entertainment transportation vehicles takes effect Wednesday, and a group of MNPD officers will be joining with personnel from the Transportation Licensing Commission and the Beer Board to monitor compliance.

A team of six officers and a sergeant will be in the area of entertainment transportation pickup and drop off locations to remind businesses and their patrons of the new ordinance and to seek voluntary compliance. A violation of the ordinance is subject to the issuance of a Metropolitan (civil) citation which, upon adjudication, carries a $50 fine.

Officers working the MNPD’s Entertainment District Initiative on Thursday through Sunday nights will also be watching for compliance with the new ordinance and will take enforcement action as appropriate.
