Top 5 Traffic Laws Broken in Mississippi

Traffic laws exist to maintain order on the road and prevent accidents. Breaking any one of those laws results in consequences. When a driver violates a traffic law, they’re often issued a moving or non-moving citation.

A moving violation happens when a traffic law is violated when a car is moving. Non-moving violations also tend to happen when a car is moving, which can confuse some drivers. The difference is the way the violations are treated by the court and the Department of Licensing (DOL). In general, non-moving violations are not reported to the DOL. The violation, however, determines the type of citation the driver is issued. The more severe the broken law, the higher the fine or penalty.

While drivers all over Mississippi break a variety of traffic laws every day, there are some that are more common than others. Let’s take a look at the top five.
