Ask a trooper: Headlights required to be on during poor weather
Q: Please explain Minnesota law regarding the use of headlights. I was dumbfounded during the heavy snows of December how few people actually had their headlights on. I was under the impression this is a state law during snow, rain, fog, etc. -- not just when it gets dark. It's hard enough to see other vehicles in a snowstorm, let alone when they do not display headlights.
