To Go Cup Law in Effect Today
Starting today, you may now carry your alcoholic beverages down the street in certain districts along the Coast.
The open container law is officially in effect, meaning in specific areas of South Mississippi cities, you may ask for a to-go cup at bars and restaurants.
City leaders say for now it’s generally the downtown areas, but signage is expected to be put up in the near future to make it more clear where these districts are.
They also want to remind you under no circumstances may you bring that to-go cup into your car.
