Don’t Forget to Use Your Lights When It’s Raining — It’s the Law
Minnesota law requires drivers turn their lights on both when it's raining and when visibility is impaired by weather.
With rain in the forecast for most of this week, here's a timely reminder of when your vehicle's lights must be used.
Subdivision 1.Lights to be displayed.
(a) Every vehicle upon a highway within this state:
(1) at any time from sunset to sunrise;
(2) at any time when it is raining, snowing, sleeting, or hailing; and
(3) at any other time when visibility is impaired by weather, smoke, fog or other conditions or there is not sufficient light to render clearly discernible persons and vehicles on the highway at a distance of 500 feet ahead"
A violation will run you a $115 ticket.
