So we are moving from Texas to Florida next week and will be driving through your fine state. Due to COVID travel restrictions will we have any problems driving through Mississippi with our Texas plates? We have no intentions to stop for gas/food/etc, just passing through. We have been social distancing sine March 10th, wearing masks/etc. we just don’t want to get in trouble on our journey through and we can’t find up to date info on our particular scenario. Please help

If you honestly believe that Mississippi is all that different from all the other states you should just drive around it.
BOL!

I'm in FL now (drove in on Wednesday) you will have no issues in MS or AL. I can't speak for LA and FL may be shutting some things down again.

The small AL towns west of Mobile on Hwy 98 are known speed traps, make sure to use Waze as your
GPS as it will let you know the best route around Mobile (the tunnel on I-10 can get backed up). The entire state of FL is a speed trap and many municipalities use cameras (Waze will warn you of these too).

Not trying to be silly but with this virus different states have different rules and we just want to understand them so we can be respectful and not have issues. Law enforcement in Texas was ticketing folks $1000 fines with Louisiana plates who weren’t isolating. We just don’t want to get into trouble is all.

Kinda cumbersome, isn't it?
You mean to tell me.... (pause for effect) .... that law enforcement in Texas will pull over a car with Louisiana license plates, determine for themselves if the occupants of that car are isolating - and they are not, because they are just driving through with the windows up - and then fine them $1,000?


The alternative to this nutty policy, which you believe is in place, is for all residents of Louisiana to stop at the Texas border, check in to a motel for 14 days, get a receipt to show to law enforcement, and then proceed across the state.


I, for one, ain't buying it. I heard the same story from people we know who were Florida bound. They believed (honestly believed) that all traffic was being stopped at the Florida line and those with Louisiana license plates were told to turn around.
It never happened.

I honestly do not care what you believe but here ya go. https://www.houstonchronicle.com/new...d-15164996.php

As I was saying, different states are doing different things. Forgive me for wanting to know, understand and be respectful of the states I’ll be traveling through. Are you always this friendly?

Your article was from March 30, which was during the lockdown. Several states restricted travel at that time.


Texas is no longer on the list of states requiring a quarantine.
