Minnesota Introduces Bills to Protect Enthusiasts From Unfair Citations

DON’T DELAY!  Please contact lawmakers to request their support for these proposals:

Overview: Minnesota has introduced SAN-supported legislation (H.F. 1832 / H.F. 4922 / S.F. 2232) to change certain traffic infractions from primary offenses to secondary offenses. Current law includes the following traffic infractions as primary offenses: operating a motor vehicle without a muffler in good working order or exceeding vehicle noise limits, without a light illuminating a license plate, with certain sun-shading materials and tinting films, and with an obstructed or missing rear-view mirror. A secondary offense is one for which a citation can only be issued if the driver is stopped for another separate offense. These bills await consideration in their respective committees: H.F. 1832 is with House Public Safety Finance and Policy, H.F. 4922 is with House Transportation Finance and Policy, and S.F. 2232 is with Senate Judiciary and Public Safety.
