If i get pulled over with a hip flask with whiskey in it, could that be considered an open container even if i had not been drinking from it. To my understanding, even alcohol in its container (fifth bottle, etc.) is considered to be an open container if the seal is broken.
I live in Louisiana, which probably doesnt change anything because, while we have incredible leniency towards drinking, common practice governing drinking and driving is brutally stringent.
