It is illegal or illegal for any passenger in a luxury limousine to drink alcoholic beverages in Ontario, Canada. The same is true of Calgary, Canada. The charter was passed in February 2007, but many people have only recently known about its existence because the charter has only recently been reviewed.
The charter is also in Calgary, Canada, and they are not very happy with it. Some companies even filed a formal complaint with the city stating that these laws discourage responsible choices for drinking and driving. This is one of the main reasons why people choose to ride a luxury car, so they don't have to drink and drive. The reason for the celebration was almost deprived. Not everyone will drink when they are in a limousine, but many people rent a limousine to host a variety of celebrations, including weddings, and go out with friends to special events or ball games or hockey games.
As a passenger in a limousine, you can carry alcoholic beverages in unopened containers during the round-trip, although no one is allowed to drink behind a limousine in Calgary, Canada or Ontario. The laws vary across Canada and as you move across the border into the United States, they vary from state to state.
This law basically contradicts the purpose of going out to participate in the limousine celebrations, which is the focus of many luxury car companies and passengers. If you can't drink while others are driving, you can also drive by yourself, let other people drive, and it is illegal to drink in the car while others are driving. This raises the law of the state where there is a separation between the driver and the person who drinks alcohol. In some states, this is considered legal, and Canadians believe that this should also be legal.
No driver has a special permit and his or her passengers cannot drink at the back of the limousine. This means that if the driver of a luxury car has a special permit, his or her passengers may drink alcohol while riding behind a luxury car.
This special license is known as the Ontario Alcohol Delivery Service License from the Registry of the Ontario Alcohol and Gambling Commission [AGCO]. This special permit allows the driver to have his or her passengers drink alcoholic beverages behind a luxury car.
AGCO collects data from luxury car companies, then develops a rigorous testing policy, and then allows luxury car companies to obtain Ontario wine delivery service licenses, where luxury car companies can provide wine or wine in luxury cars.
Drinking laws for Canadian passengers are common, from Providence to Providence, so you need to work diligently and contact your driver or limousine company before popping a cork at any celebration.
