It would appear to me that 175 of the violations were due to noticible conduct. And 227 of the violations were cited after the person had already been stopped for some noticible conduct. In other words, it looks like when you get pulled over for speeding, your are very likely to get a seat belt violation, or an insurance violation, something liek that.

71 people w/o insurance cards wow just wow! TY for those 23 improper parking folks. Glad to know SOMEBODY is giving a ticket to these people. Seriously THANK YOU! Wish that people would understand how hard it is sometimes just to get out of a car much less make it to the door without falling. On the outside I look like nothing is wrong with me but you have to look closer to see it. the 21 child restraint violations flat out makes me sad. Hope the people ticketed learn a lesson from the ticket and not just get upset they were caught. Hate to think of all the people that weren't caught seeing that this many were. Thanks for all that you do to keep us and the Rez safe!

In response to the anonymous person above about getting another violation in addition to the speeding ticket. You will find this is very common anywhere you live. you will also find that MS is quite lenient compared to other states in their violations. At least we don't have the point system. Trust me you don't want that bc IMHO it's MUCH worse. If the person wasn't doing something to get stopped in the first place they wouldn't be getting a ticket to begin with. so if they get another then it's their own fault for being stupid not the officer's. fyi no i don't have a clean record i have 3 tickets as i love to drive fast. 1 more speeding ticket on my record and I believe my next stop is i go to jail. Like i said it's the violator's fault (MINE) not the officer's. can't blame them for that bc they were just doing their job. guess it's a good thing i can't drive much anymore lol
