Nashville, Tennessee (WTVF) — A new metro ordinance will come into effect on Wednesday banning the possession and consumption of open containers of alcohol, including beer, in unsealed entertainment vehicles.
A group of metro police officers join with staff from the Transport License Commission and the Beer Commission to monitor compliance. A team of six officers and sergeants are in the area of entertainment transport pickup and drop-off locations, reminding companies and their patrons of the new ordinance and demanding voluntary compliance.
Violations of the ordinance will result in the issuance of metropolitan citizen citations and a fine of $ 50 by the ruling.
Officers working at the MNPD Red Light District Initiative from Thursday to Sunday night will also monitor compliance with the new ordinance and take enforcement action as necessary.
Recently, another bill was introduced by the Metro Council to allow unenclosed party vehicles to drink beer. However, as of December 1, this new ordinance banning all alcohol on board has come into force.
Beginning in April, driving an entertainment vehicle will require a certificate and permit from MTLC.
Drivers and businesses are also subject to background checks, vehicles are also subject to random safety and maintenance inspections, and noise regulations must be observed.
