Are you sure? I remember it's illegal to sell alcohol to drink immediately, and only after 10pm (or 11, or something like that), but bottles of wine and spirits are available 24/7...

EDIT: Here:

Divieto di vendita per asporto di bevande superalcoliche

Nelle aree di servizio situate lungo autostrade è vietata la vendita per asporto di bevande superalcoliche dalle ore 22 alle ore 6. La violazione è punita con la sanzione amministrativa pecuniaria da euro 2.500 a euro 7.000.
Divieto di somministrazione di bevande alcoliche e superalcoliche

Quanto alla somministrazione nelle medesime aree, occorre distinguere.
• la somministrazione di bevande superalcoliche è sempre vietata;
• la somministrazione di bevande alcoliche è vietata dalle ore 2 alle ore 6.

La violazione è punita con la sanzione amministrativa pecuniaria da euro 3.500 a euro 10.500.
Vendita per asporto di bevande alcoliche

Nei minimarket degli autogrill, che rientrano nella definizione di “esercizi di vicinato” il divieto di vendita opera dalle ore 24 alle ore 6.

Nei bar degli autogrill, come in tutti gli esercizi esterni all’autostrada, si dovrebbe applicare l’art. 6 del D.L. 3 agosto 2007, n. 117 che vieta la vendita per asporto dalle 3 alle 6. Tuttavia, poiché, come si è visto, la somministrazione deve essere interrotta alle ore 02, e la possibilità di vendita deriva dall’autorizzazione alla somministrazione, si ricava che anche la vendita per asporto deve cessare alle 02.

Peraltro, secondo parte della dottrina, in base ad una diversa interpretazione all’art. 5 della legge 287/91, solo la somministrazione potrebbe proseguire fino alle 02, mentre la vendita per asporto dovrebbe cessare alle 24, come nel minimarket.
Spirits to go are forbidden 10pm-6am. Spirits to drink on the spot are forbidden always; normal alcoholic beverages (wine-beer) are forbidden 2am-6am.

I though that drink-on-the spot alchool was always forbidden in Autogrills.
Of course, bottled alchool is allowed as Autogrills usually have a good sortiment of local wines (that are supposed to be purchased and brought home).

BTW in Italy, for a couple of years, the sale of every kind alchool is always forbidden everywhere between 2 and 6 a.m.
This law was meant to reduce DUI (if people have the last drink at 2 a.m., they are no longer drunk when they drive home at 7 a.m.) but I doubt it's effective since people can bring bottles of spirit from home and drink all night long. It was more a political move to say: "we're doing something to make people drinking less."

You're welcome to it, believe me!

My boss is going to Aruba next week. Don't want to hear too many complaints from her about the weather. (I mean the weather here, now.)

I will never understand those people. If they are in hurry, well okay, they might be aggressive, but I suppose they watch their time and don't have any to fight or do any offensive movements. But these morons.

I have one experience. The road I had turned on was narrow only for one car and I see a lady driving towards me. So before I enter the narrowed section I flash my brights to let her go. As she accelerated a stupid moron overtook me and blocked all of us. I did some gestures to show him how stupid he was. He drove backward to tell me I am piece of sh*t and went on with offensive words. A very ugly lady was sitting beside him, so I guess he wanted to show her how he can look down on other people. Then he force the lady in opposite car drive back.

Okay, he might have been angry for slow drivers, he might have objective reason to be in hurry, but tell why the hell he had time wasting with other drivers.

Am I the only one that can't open the last page of the German Autobahn thread? Every time I click on it, it tries opening it and halfway into loading the tab just completely freezes.

People say it is bad but can't explain why. Everybody drives their car to the liquor store anyway, nobody is going to be walking home with 5 bottles vodka and some boxes of wine

On the other hand, in the States, police bother you if you drink a beer walking in the street cause you're supposed to do that at home or at the bar.
Drive-through things ain't that popular in Europe, except some new McDonald's restaurants.

My favorite one in that you aren't allowed to be drunk in public. But also not allowed to drive drunk, and if you are drunk, bar owner can throw you outside. So - how are you supposed to go home?

Or even that it is illegal to have open container of alcoholic beverage inside the car while driving, so that passenger cannot drink and neither driver. Why not? In the limousines the back is always well stocked and we can party but it is always illegal Mind you I guess the cocaine back there illegal is also

The drive-through liquor stores were really drive-through in that sense of the word. It had two large doors on each side of the building, and you drove inside it with your car, and could peruse the offers on display as you drove through, and the attendant would take your money and give your product on the spot.

Do you mean container as a part of car, or container as a pack of several bottles?

No, just a single bottle in your hand or glass even!

I wonder what happens if you take empty beer bottles back to the store for recycling...

Actually, I have not been thinking about that since it is not common to drink alcoholic beverages in car within my friend or family, but I can hardly imagine the law enforcement. According to what you say, if I bought something in wholesale and the passenger in my car wanted to taste it, we would be arrested by police?

Indeed. I think in my area fine is about $150 or $300.

It makes no sense, since even driver can drink the bottle and still be less than limit for alcohol... I can't say I have ever done so or wanted to.

Mind you once, in my university days, I was driving to a party in the cottage country with a passenger, who bought can of beer at the gas station when I was filling up, and opened that can in my convertible while I was driving on the curvy road, I had beer all over my carpet and console, I was not happy... and did pass a police, but he didn't notice either the can or my speed, maybe sleeping, or in the middle of eating donut...

I did have a friend whose mother frequently filled vodka into bottled water bottle and sipped that while driving. I was young but remember thinking "wow you are crazy"

On an unrelated note, here is a delightful map of Poland someone sent me, note that Zielona Gora (or is it Zgorzelec) is a very happy place indeed

In Italy drinking or being drunk in public is not illegal, unless you drive or annoy other people. Also here barmans are forbidden to sell alchoolic beverage to those who are visibly drunk and pubs and discos can even forbid them to entry (a friend of mine knew well this few saturdays ago ).
