168.2701 LIABILITY OF LESSORS FOR UNPAID TRAFFIC FINES.
When a motor vehicle lessor, licensed under section
168.27, subdivision 2
, 3, or 4, is issued a
traffic violation citation for a violation committed by a lessee while operating the leased or rented
vehicle, the lessor shall convey to the issuing authority within 15 days of the lessor receiving
knowledge of the traffic violation, information to the extent available, including the driver's full
name, home address, local address, if any, license number, employer's name and address, post
office box, and form of payment. Upon compliance with this section, the lessor is not liable for the
amount of fine, penalty assessment, late payment penalty, or cost of warrants issued in connection
with the violation. However, action on the part of the issuing authority relieving the lessor of
liability does not absolve the person incurring the violation of responsibility for the infraction.
