Inspection Stickers Could Become a Thing of the Past

Safety inspection stickers for your vehicle could become a thing of the past this legislative session.

Mississippi is just one out of six states who still require annual inspection stickers. State legislators believe the $700,000 spent by tax payers on the program is a waste. Representatives say after six years of voting to abolish the law, they hope to finally get the Senate on their side.

State Representative Richard Bennett (R), District 120, says, “It’s a bill that needs to go away. There’s only five states besides Mississippi that even have inspection stickers anymore, and again, it’s something that’s costing tax payers $700,000 and it’s an obsolete program.”

Supporters of the bill believe the $125 fine for not having a sticker it vital to state revenue.
