Question: The other day at an intersection, I noticed a car with the windows so frosted up that the driver had to roll down a window to check for cars coming from my side. What is the law on frosted windows?


Answer: Minnesota Statute 169.71 subdivision 3 states, "No person shall drive any motor vehicle with the windshield or front side windows covered with steam or frost to such an extent as to prevent proper vision."
