    As was quoted to me
    With-In reach of the drivers seat,I transport beer under my bunk in a cooler
    and or in my fridge.

    DOT shake downs are very few and far between,unless they have probable suspicion
    they will not flip your truck.

    It's your ### if you get caught open or not in the cab of that truck. If your hauling beer it better be in bulk too! Not just a case in the trailer.

    I am not scared to have a case of beer in [ or on] my trailer. It is my truck, my trailer, my beer, and if not in cab, not available for consumption while driving. What is wrong with that ?

    don't care if you ain't "scared" .....manifested in the trailer......no manifest, not a legal load. "illegal hauling of alcoholic beverages"...oh yeah, you had better have an alcohol beverage permit with you too, if you drive through some states...i think Kentucky is at least one of them.....

    There are some things in life that you just keep quiet about. If I even planned on traveling with ANY amount of alcohol en route to my house (if I owned my own truck), I definitely wouldn't be broadcasting that information on the internet. You already know the answer to the "Can I carry alcohol in the cab" question. The real question should be "Am I willing to risk my license and livelihood over some beverages that I can purchase at the local store while at home?".

    Stop publically telling on yourselves for goodness sakes! There are people always watching you.

    Take note if you try to slide it on your bills, you have to have an alcohol permit in your permit book. Each carrier has to have authority to haul it.
    It's best to keep it off the truck. You never know just like the first poster never would of thought. It's not worth the hassle since you can buy it at your local store.

    Edited: Sorry rerun, posted before reading yours.

    If he was on his way home couldn't he consider his truck to be his personal vehicle, didn't we have that discussion some time ago?

    State laws may differ on this situation....

    I don't know specifics and they may have been changed, but in Ohio it wasn't illegal to have alcohol in the truck. Its illegal to consume it while operating the vehicle but not to carry it, unopened.

    I know a guy who got pulled over who had beer in the cooler/fridge in his sleeper. It was a six pack and one was gone. Why they searched the truck I can't remember, but in the end I do know he didn't get anything out of the ordeal.

    That was back in the late 90's early 2000's. Like I said laws may have and probably have been changed.

    The problem is that there are too many different laws that contradict each other. There needs to be one universal law that's written in plain english. Too much confusion with too many laws floating around.

    Here's an excerpt; the full text can be found at:

    http://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/rules-regul...&keyword=392.5

    The way I read it is, if it's on the truck, and it's not "part of a shipment", you're busted.

    General

    §392.5 Alcohol prohibition.
    (a) No driver shall—

    (a)(3) Be on duty or operate a commercial motor vehicle while the driver possesses wine of not less than one-half of one per centum of alcohol by volume, beer as defined in 26 U.S.C. 5052(a), of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954, and distilled spirits as defined in section 5002(a)(, of such Code. However, this does not apply to possession of wine, beer, or distilled spirits which are:
    (a)(3)(i) Manifested and transported as part of a shipment; or


    (c) Any driver who is found to be in violation of the provisions of paragraph (a) or (b) of this section shall be placed out-of-service immediately for a period of 24 hours.
