Liquor Law OK’d in OKla.

Posted on June 10, 2003 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

OKLAHOMA CITY — Operators praised Gov. Brad Henry for signing a measure that makes it legal for passengers in limousines and chartered buses to drink alcoholic beverages.

The measure created an exemption to Oklahoma’s open container law, which prohibits open containers of alcoholic beverages in the passenger compartments of moving vehicles.

“We’re helping the customers from getting a DUI and we’re helping the public by keeping [intoxicated people] off the street,” said Paul Heisten, co-owner of Tulsa-based First Class Limousine. “It’s a plus-plus situation.”

“Operators in Oklahoma City really got behind [the measure] because they were getting tickets. Some of their drivers may have gone to jail,” he added.
