I will be visiting St. John for the 3rd time this fall and am wondering...how much trouble do you get into if you are caught driving after consuming alcohol? It seems that everyone is at some point, drinking at the beach, then driving to another destination. Or, drinking at lunch/dinner, then driving to the beach, etc.
I asked around on the island before and most folks laughed it off, saying, "the only thing you'll get a ticket for here is not wearing your seat belt." Is this true? I saw lots of people with beer in their Jeep cup holders while there. Is that an ok thing to do?
I'm not planning to get wasted and drive while visiting by any means! But what if we choose to have a few beers with dinner and drive back to our villa? If we get pulled over, will we be arrested?
I hope that I don't sound like an irresponsible vacationer/driver. I'm just trying to be realistic about typical island behavior and potential consequences of behaving like everyone else! ha!
