A number of Mississippi sheriffs, including Lauderdale County's Billy Sollie, have lobbied the legislature for the authority to use radar on county roads.

Veteran legislator, Rep. Bobby Moody of Louisville, said Friday the rural counties will probably block it.

"That's one of those things that I don't think is going to pass this year," said Moody. "A lot of your rural counties, they really don't want it. They don't want to have that responsibility and they don't have the personnel to go to the training to be trained."

Moody said perhaps radar will be authorized for the larger counties some day but not any time soon.
