911
911 is the telephone number to summon Police,
Fire, Rescue, and Ambulance personnel in Nobles
County and the City of Worthington. This number
is for emergencies only. The number to call for
non-emergency police business is 372-2136.
The Following Are
Specific State Statutes
Auto Insurance—Minnesota Law requires that all
motor vehicles be covered by a minimum liability
insurance policy. Proof of the insurance coverage
must be carried in the vehicle at all times and be
available upon the request of a police officer. In-
surance is required for all vehicles; this includes
vehicles operated in Minnesota that are registered
in another state.
Driver’s License—If you are a new resident of
Minnesota, a 60-day grace period is granted for you
to obtain a Minnesota Diver’s License. The same
time period is set for registering your motor vehi-
cles in Minnesota.
If you are a resident of Minnesota and you change
your address, you have 30 days to change the ad-
dress on your driver’s license.
Seat Belts—The State of Minnesota requires the use of seat
belts for all occupants of the front seat of a motor vehicle.
Children up to the age of 4 years must be restrained in a
child restraint system (car seat). All children under 11 are
required to wear seat belts when seated anywhere in a motor
vehicle. It is the driver’s responsibility to make sure occu-
pants under the age of 15 years are restrained while in mo-
tor vehicle.
Alcohol & Controlled Substance—The State of Minnesota
prohibits drivers from operating motor vehicles while in-
toxicated by alcohol or controlled substances. Minnesota
Law also forbids the presence of open containers of alco-
holic beverages inside the driver and passenger areas of a
motor vehicle. Because alcohol-related motor vehicle
crashes are a leading cause of injury and death on our high-
ways, the Worthington Police Department strictly enforces
impaired driving.IF YOU DRINK, DON’T DRIVE!
Equipment—All vehicles on public streets must have all
equipment in working order at all times. This includes all
lights, mufflers, and all safety equipment.
Window Tinting—Minnesota Law forbids the use of win-
dow tinting on the windshield of any vehicle (unless it was
part of the manufacturing process). Minnesota Law re-
quires window tinting to allow at least 47% light transmit-
tance on side or rear windows of passenger vehicles. Pick-
up trucks and vans can have a higher amount of tinting on
the windows to the rear of the driver’s seat. Materials used
for tinting may not have a reflection rate of more than 23%.
Just because a legitimate company installed the tinting ma-
terial doesn’t mean the material complies with the law.
Make sure you check the law before making a purchase.
Emergency Vehicles—Minnesota Emergency Vehicles
have the right of way when operating red lights and sirens.
This includes all Police, Fire, Rescue, and Ambulances.
When you see these vehicles, you must pull to the right side
of the road and let them pass. This includes their right of
way at intersections.
YOU MAY NOT FOLLOW A FIRE TRUCK OR EN-
TER THE AREAS WHERE THEY ARE!
The Following are City
Ordinances of the City
of Worthington
Parking of Vehicles—A vehicle may not be
parked in the same place on a public street or in a
public parking lot for over a 24-hour period.
Snow removal is assisted by an odd/even parking
regulation in the winter. During November 15th
to April 15th, the ordinance states that on odd
days of the month you park on the side of the
street with odd house numbers and on the even
days on the side with the even house numbers.
Remember at the end of some months and the
beginning of some months, there are two odd
days in a row. (i.e. December 31 and January 1).
The City does not allow junk cars to be parked in
the city, including on private property.
Exhibition Driving—The City of Worthington
prohibits any type of Exhibition Driving, such as
tire squealing, spinning on sand or gravel, simu-
lating a race or other erratic driving.
Noise—The City of Worthington prohibits the
making or production of an unnecessary noise by
shouting or by any other means or mechanism,
including the blowing of any automobile or other
vehicle horn.
You are not allowed to discharge (shoot) any
firearm in the city limits. This includes BB and
pellet guns. Nor are you allowed to discharge
explosives, fireworks or firecrackers. Nor are
you allowed to possess fireworks or firecrackers.
