Mississippi to implement ban on squatted vehicles

Mississippi to ban “Squatted vehicles”

Governor Tate Reeves, a Republican from Mississippi, recently signed House Bill 349 into law. This legislation will come into effect on July 1, 2024.

The bill tackles the problem of “squatted vehicles,” referring to trucks or vehicles with front fenders raised four inches or more higher than the rear fenders.

According to officials from the Mississippi Department of Public Safety (DPS), individuals who break this law will face misdemeanor charges, hefty fines, and could have their licenses suspended.

The department emphasized that the primary objective of the new law is to ensure road safety and promote responsible driving practices. They highlighted the importance of avoiding modifications to vehicles that might compromise visibility, as it poses risks not only to the driver but also to others on the road. Safety remains their utmost concern, and they are committed to prioritizing it.
