SPECIAL NOTE REGARDING DRIVING IN CALIFORNIA AND MINNESOTA
California Vehicle Code Section 26708 (a) (1) provides that "No persons shall
drive any motor vehicle with an object or material placed, displayed, installed,

Note: this section of the California Vehicle Code applies to anyone driving in

Minnesota State Legislature Statutes Section 169.71, subdivision 1, section 2

between the driver and the windshield other than sun visors and rearview
mirrors and electronic toll collection devices."
Note: this Minnesota Stature applies to anyone driving in Minnesota, not just
