Every now and again, we pull up behind a car like the one we pulled up behind in downtown St. Paul this morning — a trash car. There are any number of possibilities here. The person could be homeless (unlikely since there’s no place to sleep in the car and the toilet paper is too far in the back), a hoarder, or just got behind when it came to cleaning.
I could find no statute in Minnesota that says being so obstructed is illegal. The only one I could find pertains to someone towing something.
(169.70)Every motor vehicle which is so constructed, loaded or connected with another vehicle as to obstruct the driver’s view to the rear thereof from the driver’s position shall be equipped with a mirror so located as to reflect to the driver a view of the highway for a distance of at least 200 feet to the rear of such vehicle.
