highway easement

An easement belonging to the public embracing all public travel not prohibited by law, on foot, in carriages, omnibuses, stages, sleighs, or other vehicles, as the wants and habits of the public demand. Carli v Stillwater Street Railway and Transfer Co. 28 Minn 373. "Whether it be travel, the transportation of persons and property, or the transmission of intelligence, and whether accomplished by old methods or new ones, they are all included within the public highway easement, and impose no additional servitude upon the land, provided they are not inconsistent with the reasonably safe and practical use of the highway in other and usual necessary modes, and provided they do not unreasonably impair the special easements of abutting owners in the street for purposes of access, light and air." Cater v Northwestern Tel. Exchange Co. 60 Minn 539, 63 NW 111.
