Wait? That’s illegal?

Oh.  Drunk.  I get it now.

JONATHAN TURLEY

      I can’t speak to the laws of the many states, but it’s drunk driving in Canada (where we have a single federal criminal code.) if you’re even in the driver’s seat with the keys in your possession. The ignition doesn’t even have to be on. People have been arrested and convicted on that basis.

        When in school to get my CDL, the suggestion was that if you are parked and go have a drink, climb in via the passenger side door to climb into your bunk to sleep it off. Some jurisdictions/LEOs can be shitty if you are even in the driver’s seat, engine on or not. Better to be safe than sorry, as a drinking conviction as a driver can render you unemployable (if you even get to keep your CDL).
