The other day, I saw an old Jeep around Rochester, Minnesota that was missing a pretty vital piece.  The entire windshield was missing and all I could think of was, "Man! I bet they get a ton of bugs in their face when they are driving around.".  Then I got curious and started to wonder if that was even legal in the state of Minnesota.

Can you legally drive without a windshield on your car in Minnesota?

I did some research the other day after I drove next to a Jeep Wrangler that was missing a windshield.  It was super cute and is a dream car for me, but I wasn't sure what the rules actually were for driving around town without that safety glass in front of your face.

According to the Meshbesher & Spence Lawyers' website, the following statement was made regarding if you can drive legally without a windshield:

Having a windshield on your car is not specifically required anywhere in Minnesota statutes. Though we highly recommend them!  If you do have a windshield, then you’re required by law to have working windshield wipers installed on your vehicle

According to the part about having working windshield wipers, there is a vehicle that I drove the other day that should no longer be driven.  #JustSayin'

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
