Driving in Mississippi
Out of the 1.9 million registered drivers in the state, about 570,000 of them do not carry adequate insurance (or any). This makes purchasing uninsured motorist coverage highly recommended.
Mississippi state law requires any vehicle that spends a majority of it’s year in use, stored or garaged within state borders to carry a Mississippi motor vehicle registration.
