Texting & Driving Ban Vote For Sioux Falls TONIGHT
So it is a big night for the city and its drivers. Sioux Falls City Council votes tonight to ban texting and driving. Are you for or against it? We would love your comments below.
The second reading Tuesday night is a proposal that would restrict the use of electronic communications devices, including cell phones, laptops, GPS systems and more. It would also make texting and driving illegal on city streets.
The push for a texting-while-driving ban in Sioux Falls was started earlier this year by a group called Citizens for Cell Phone Safety While Driving. The South Dakota Legislature has rejected proposed statewide bans in the last two years, but Sioux Falls' home rule charter allows it to pass measures not forbidden by state law.
