Mississppi Traffic Violations

If you commit a traffic violation in Mississippi, the city and county where you received your citation will oversee your traffic violation. Mississippi county clerk offices manage payment of traffic ticket fines, so if you receive a traffic ticket in Mississippi you will have to contact the local county clerk's office in the county or city where you incurred the moving violation.

Points System and License Suspension

The reason it is important to pay your traffic violation fine on time is that failure to meet Mississippi timing deadlines will result in automatic suspension of your Mississippi driving privileges. In addition to having your Mississippi driving privileges suspended merely for paying your initial fine late, you will need to pay an additional $310 to have your Mississippi driving privileges reinstated. Because all communication from Mississippi courts and the Mississippi Department of Public Safety is directed to the address on your driver's license, you must make sure that information is up to date or contact the local Mississippi county clerk's office handling your traffic violation to make sure you receive these communications.

The state of Mississippi does not invoke a "points" system against your Mississippi driving record, meaning no statutory requirement exists for Mississippi to automatically revoke or suspend your license based on multiple traffic violations within a given amount of time. However, the severity of your traffic violation penalty is under the discretion of the local Mississippi court where you received your moving violation. Thus, if you fail to consistently observe safe standards of driving, a Mississippi court could choose to suspend your restrict your Mississippi driving privileges.
