MISSISSIPPI CODE OF 1972
As Amended

SEC. 63-3-1213. Careless driving

Any person who drives any vehicle in a careless or imprudent manner, without due regard for the width, grade, curves, corner, traffic and use of the streets and highways and all other attendant circumstances is guilty of careless driving. Careless driving shall be considered a lesser offense than reckless driving.


Every person convicted of careless driving shall be punished by a fine of not less than Five Dollars ($5.00) nor more than Fifty Dollars ($50.00).


SOURCES: Laws, 1993, ch. 317, Sec. 1, eff from and after July 1, 1993 (became law without Governor's signature on March 16, 1993).

Sound familiar?

If you contest it, I'm sure the officer will describe, in detail, what he observed you do and why you recieved the citation.

Contact an attorney for advice in regards to your state law.

You can show up the 6th and plead not guilty and go from there.

It's called "bond." It ensures you show up to court or pay the fine. You ARE going to show up or pay the fine, right? If yes, you'll get your license back.

Just by quick glance, cutting a corner or cornering too quickly could be careless driving?

I can't help but wonder what #419 has to say.

Yea, of course. I've gotten speeding tickets before and they never took my license though.

But I mean I can still be driving even I don't physically have my license right? As long as I have that citation with me?

He never stated you were speeding, and he didn't cite you for speeding. You were not stopped for speeding.

You were not stopped for speeding.

You were not cited for speeding.



In all seriousness, he percieved something you did as careless. If you disagree, contest the ticket.

But stop focusing on speeding.

If you really want answers to your questions you need to contact the Officer involved, period.

Why didn't he explain to me exactly why he pulled me over when I asked him at the scene? He basically just stated that it was his opinion and said "no" when I asked if he could elaborate on why he pulled me over..

Strange. Ill guess ill see if he wants go to court over the issue.

Because the side of the road (especially in a rainstorm) isn't the place to debate your violation. That place is the courtroom.

And I would imagine you'd be fine to drive on the ticket, but I'm not from MS, so you had better check with someone in your state.

Call & ask him, or go to court.
It's that simple.

Otherwise all it looks like is, well, you should have the picture by now.

I don't argue with people on the side of the road.


We can argue as much as we want in court, on the side of the road, with traffic going past, is not the place for it.

Actually I pulled into an entrance to a subdivision, so there was no traffic going past, however it was raining.

Made me think of the old Drew Carey stand up, when he said he likes to run red lights when its raining really hard outside just so the cop will have to get out and stand in the rain.

"You know why I pulled you over Mr. Carey" "Yea, you know why I ran that red light?"

I don't debate on the side of the road. That's what court is for. I have no idea why he'd keep your license. We don't seize someone's license here in NC, but MS may be different. I have found that I still had someone's license later on that night because I simply forgot to give it back to them. I will usually drive to their house and give it to them or drop it in the mail to them, depending on how far away they are.

You weren't cited for speeding, but for careless driving. I imagine he saw something, whether it was speed, how you were slowing for the turn in the rain or whatnot. Since none of us were there, we don't know. I'd suggest talking to the officer. If he blows you off, go to his SGT.

ETA: Money has nothing to do with your ticket. Don't complain when you talk to him, don't debate it. Just ask what he saw was the violation and why he still has your license.

Maybe the officers get the money there; here we get citation reward points that are redeamable for merchandise and trips. I know a trooper who is very active who got a fourteen day cruise. Five more speeders, a stop sign violation, and a suspended DL and I got me a new toaster oven.

One seldom has to assume what the speed limit is or, for that matter, guess how fast they are driving. As suggested this citation was not for speeding. However it pays to remember that a posted speed limit is generally that which is deemed safe for daylight, little traffic, dry conditions, etc. Depending on other circumstances, one may suggest it is careless to drive the posted speed limit at night in the rain going around a corner.

I have no qualifications what-so-ever to answer your questions but I am just going to throw it out there and see if it sticks; driving too fast for the conditions(rain). Not a speeding violation but a careless driving issue. If you were driving the posted speed limit in the rain that is careless driving (and you clearly admit this). If you don't increase your distance behind the driver in front of you during rain that is careless driving. If you don't take longer time and distance to brake for stops and turns during a rain that is careless driving. Jack rabbit takeoffs and heavy acceleration during a rain is careless driving. etc etc

OP, my roadside manner is often different (when time and safety allow) than what you describe, however, we're only getting your side of the story. My tickets are also more detailed with a short, single sentence narrative describing the violation, however, that's a matter of location and policy.

There's something on that ticket that is a humorous small coincidence to me, but it has nothing to do with your post or you.

You already figured it out...he was "just doing it for the money."

Would you care to elaborate on what that means? Do officers in your areas get commission on tickets?
