Wanting to pick up a lot of wine and liquor for an event and your friend is pretty sure that you are only legally allowed to have a certain amount of alcohol in your vehicle while traveling in New York State? Wait, what? There is a limit to how much I can have in the car? Just going from point a to point b?

The answer is (as it often is with the State of New York) it depends. Is the wine and liquor to be used for personal consumption, like a party or just for you to stock up at home? That's all we are focusing on here, personal use not for wholesale or retail stores, nor are we including beer in this discussion.

The limit that you are allowed to have in your car in New York State, is there is no limit, as long as you are not consuming the alcohol in the car, and you are not reselling it. You are also required to have it placed in areas that are not occupied with passengers and encouraged to get it to its destination and out of the vehicle as quickly and safely as possible.
