Default Did You Know?? (actual trooper answered questions)

There is a webite called "ask a trooper" in MN and i've learned a lot about the laws of the highway:

These laws apply in MN, your state may be different.

You can ride in the back of an open pick up truck.

you do not need doors on your truck

windshields are not required, but if you do have a windshield, you must have wipers (LOL)

fog lights and driving lights are legal to use at any time, provided they are aimed correctly.

ONE mirror is all that is required on a motor vehicle, so, you Jeep wrangler owners will not be ticketed for no side mirrors in Minnesota if you remove your doors

a hood is NOT required.

all aftermarket HID headlights are Illegal and most larger city police and all state troopers have a list of all vehicles that came with factory with HID's which are legal.

If your vehicle came factory with fog lights and you are not using them in inclimate weather, you can be ticketed.

Neon lights anywhere on the outside of the vehicle, even underneath are illegal.

wheel spinners are illegal.

driving barefoot is legal, but discouraged.

total towing length of truck-fifth wheel trailer-ball hitch trailer can be up to 70'

passengers can ride in fifth wheel campers while being towed.

We have about the same laws in Washington, although on top of needing wipers with no windshield, you must have eye protection. Buddy rolled his Toyota on 38s, his mom came (we were 17 at the time so she had to come collect her vehicle) after we got it on the wheels, she kicked the windshield out, put on snowboarding glasses, put the windshield in the back and drove it home. lol

Lol his mom is maybe 105 lbs, 5 ft 1 and she's smoking hot, I'd put up pics if I had em. She's a country girl, she will kick your ass, put her cigarette out on your forehead, then get dressed up and go out and not break a sweat lol
