Mississippi revises proof-of-coverage requirements

This Mississippi Legislature voted to revise the penalties for the crime of failure to have proof of liability insurance coverage.

Mississippi Amendment to House Bill 325 updates a section of the bill from 1972. Any monies exceeding the amount needed to defray the expenses and costs of the verification system identification fund at the end of the fiscal year, will be transferred to a special fund created to support a Highway Patrol Trooper School.

The Amendment also changed failure to have mandatory motor vehicle liability insurance from a civil violation to a criminal offense.
