Editor's note: The following is an "Ask a Trooper" column provided by Sergeant Jesse Grabow of the Minnesota State Patrol.

Question: Since it is summer time and I'm spending a lot of time at the beach with the kids I often jump in my car to go home and don't put my sandals back on. Is this legal? Can I drive barefoot or would I get a ticket?
