Ask a Trooper by: Trooper Tim Rust of the MN State Patrol Tim: Could you remind drivers that Minnesota has a law that requires vehicle headlights to be used during certain conditions? I would be happy to. Minnesota State Statute 169.:8 requires our vehicles headlights to be on from sunset to sunrise. Headlights are also re.quired to be on any time it is raining, snowing, sleeting, hailing, or any time visibility is impaired by weather, smoke, fog, or other conditions. Headlights are also required to be on if there is not sufficient light to clearly see people or vehicles at least 500 feet ahead. Failure to use headlights when required is a moving violation that will show (upon conviction) on a Minnesota driving record and usually includes a monetary fine that most would prefer to spend elsewhere. Several years ago, while driving in Alaska. I noted road signs on some roadways requiring vehicle headlights to be on regardless of the time of day or conditions. These signs were posted in an fort to reduce motor vehicle crashes T,,.the area. Studies have shown that b"y,.simply turning on our headlights we can reduce our chances of being involved in a crash. In Minnesota. more motor vehicle crashes are caused by inattentive or distracted drivers than by any other single factor. Turning on our vehicles headlights can sometimes mean the difference between being noticed or hit! A good rule of thumb in Minnesota: if your windshield wipers are on, or visibility is reduced, your headlights should be on as well.
