Minnesotans love their trucks. Every year a study is done on the best-selling cars in every state. 2022’s report hasn’t been published yet, but in 2021 a pick-up truck was the top selling car here in Minnesota.

The obstruction creates serious challenges for people with mobility issues, has left many with bruised shins, and is actually illegal in several Minnesota cities.
