Statewide Texting Ban Starts Today


Texting banIt’s been years in the works, and today it became law. It is now illegal to text while driving in South Dakota. State Senator Mike Vehle of Mitchell fought for the law for years….


Vehle maintained throughout his push for the ban that it was about changing a culture and not writing tickets…..


Several cities passed their own texting while driving bans in anticipation of legislative action.  The new law carries a $100 fine.
