The South Dakota Department of Public Safety wants to remind you that a new law making it illegal for young drivers to use a cell phone while driving takes effect Monday, July 1.

The new law bans drivers with learner’s permits or restricted minor’s permits from “using any handheld communication device while driving.”

“Young people still gaining experience with driving really need to avoid any distractions,’’ said Jenna Howell, director of Legal and Regulatory Services for Public Safety. “Driving is a full-time responsibility for all of us. That is especially true for our younger drivers who are still trying to get comfortable behind the wheel of a vehicle. The law emphasizes the need to pay attention to the road.’’

The new law is a secondary offense. That means that to get a ticket a driver has to be stopped for something else before a phone ticket can be issued.
