As long as the beer wasn't open and you had no alcohol in your system there shouldn't have been any issues! You could fight any kind of ticket/punishment the cop may have been shitty enough to give out, especially if you have burns on your hand
@#41, if you get burned, yes, it makes sense to grab the only cold thing in the car. But that doesn't mean you get back in the car and start driving, not if there are laws in your country about having alcohol in reach of the driver. You sit on the side of the road and hold that beer until either you're good to put it away, or, if it requires treatment, until medical help arrives.
Illinois is one state you can't have any alcohol in your car, open or not. Illegal transportation. It has to be in your trunk. If you're in a van or SUV, you're screwed, there aren't any exemptions for open vehicles. Most cops don't say anything, from what I've experienced, unless the driver seems intoxicated.
Actually, with my previous vehicle, it was a good idea to run the A/C when it was overheating - it kicked on an auxiliary fan under the hood which actually cooled the engine off. That being said, I'm doubting OP was bright enough to know whether or not that would be the case with their car.
You put your hand near the muffler to feel if the engine was overheating? Wat?
#19 My car doesn't have "idiot" lights. It has one that says check engine, one that looks like a steering wheel with a lightning bolt on it, one that looks like a baby taking a nap, one that looks like a fox jumping in a hole, but nowhere on my dash does it say idiot.
