Texting Ban Could Spread
The ban on texting while driving that took effect September 28 in Sioux Falls could spread, but at least one South Dakota city will leave it to the Legislature.
Sioux Falls police say officers wrote no tickets for texting behind the wheel during the first weekend the ban was in effect.
A member of the Watertown City Council has asked their city attorney to draft an ordinance.
City Council members in Huron are still discussing the issue.
But in Mitchell, City Council members agreed to ask the Legislature to consider a statewide ban.
In other words, we could wind up waiting until January, February or March to find out if South Dakota will have a border-to-border ban.
