    Empty containers in the vehicle after/during a trail run?

    This topic was brought to my attention when I was wheeling this weekend after I saw a number of beer cans on the side of the trail.
    I was in the middle of picking them up and throwing them in the back of the truck, thinking to myself, What idiots would leave these blatantly on the side of the trail like this, Flippin morons! After all the work the community goes through to keep the trails clean.
    I was then informed that the weekend after the accident with the buggy and one of the cottagers trucks, the police were out flagging down people in 4x4 vehicles, issuing charges for empty beer cans in their vehicle visable to the officer.
    I wanted to know the rules on this subject. Maybe the section and act that this subject would fit under, and the discretion of the officer, or even if this was the case.

    I d hate to think that people would be compelled to leave trail garbage on the trail for fear of charges pending or tickets issued.

    Thanks in advance for the saves officers answer.

    Not sure i have this right. You CAN get charged with having empty's in you vehicle even if you have not had anything to drink?

    ^this

    If its obvious that you are simply picking up trash, and it is stored as such, you should have no problems.
