Beginning today, Friday, July 1, the long-awaited ‘Blackout’ tags are finally available to Mississippi drivers.
The new vanity plates are all black with white lettering and a portion of the fees collected will be donated to help the families of fallen law enforcement officers and firefighters.
The plate was created with House Bill 446, which passed both state chambers and was signed by Gov. Tate Reeves. Half of the cost of the license plates goes toward the State Law Enforcement and Firefighter Death Benefits Trust Fund.
The plates are available for cars and light-duty pickups. At this time there is no blackout option for motorcycle plates.
