Minnesota Weird Driving Laws

Many of us consider ourselves experts on driving laws. We all have to know them to keep ourselves and other drivers safe on the roads. Most driving laws make sense, but some oddities slip through the cracks. Check out these weird Minnesota driving laws that are good for a laugh, but can also make you think.

Minnesota State Laws

If you enjoy riding a motorcycle, be sure you follow the strict dress code enforced by the state. In Minnesota “all men driving motorcycles must wear shirts.”

If you happen to leave the state of Minnesota, be sure you keep your head clear of animals because “a person may not cross state lines with a duck atop his head.” Citizens heading into Wisconsin must follow a similar rule, and cannot enter the state “with a chicken on their head.”

Minnesota City Weird Driving Laws

This list of weird Minnesota driving laws expands on the city level. Commercial truck drivers should be sure to keep an eye on their tires when driving through Minnetonka because “driving a truck with firsts tires is considered a public nuisance.”

If you drive a red car in the city of Minneapolis, stay away from Lake Street. City laws state that “red cars may not drive down Lake Street.”

While it is not necessarily a driving law, anyone flying an airplane over the city of Cottage Grove should resist the temptation to land in a public park, as this is prohibited.

Commercial truck owners near Minneapolis, or throughout the rest of Minnesota and the Midwest, looking to add to their fleet, can do so at Allstate Peterbilt Group. You can view our inventory, or find a location, right here on our website.
