State-wide texting ban clears another hurdle

by

Pierre, SD (KELO-AM) The state-wide texting-while-driving ban approved by a State Senate committee Wednesday is not about the $100 fine, it's sponsor says, but about changing the culture.

State Senator Mike Vehle (R) says now your kids in the backseat nag you to buckile your seat belt, so if the ban becomes law, eventually they will nag you about not texting while driving.

This bill, which now goes to the Senate floor, is similar to a texting ban approved earlier by the House, though the House bill contains a $25 fine.
