Governor Tate Reeves recently signed House Bill 349 that is effective July 1, 2024.
This bill bans “squatted vehicles”
A squatted vehicle is any truck or vehicle with front fenders raised four inches or more higher than the rear fenders.
Violating this law will result in a misdemeanor, substantial fines, and potential license suspension.
According to the Mississippi Department of Public Safety,
“The main goal of this new law is to keep everyone safe on the roads and encourage safe and smart driving habits. Modifying vehicles in ways that affect visibility isn’t just risky for the driver but for everyone sharing the road.”
Hinds County Sheriff Tyree Jones commented on the bill saying, “This was much needed!”
