New State Law: Texting and Driving

July brought with it a new driving ban for South Dakota. The ban is on texting and driving. This new law will attempt to get people to put down the phone while driving. It was previously illegal to text and drive in many cities across the state; however this law increases coverage to every road in the entire state of South Dakota. The new law is a secondary offense. That means you have to be pulled over for something else to get the steep fine of $100.

Along the same lines, a movie theatre in Hong Kong communicated how risky it is to use mobile phones while driving.  The below video had more than 1.5 million views in its first 3 days.

Do your part in making South Dakota a safer state by putting down the phone while driving!
