Mitchell Won't Ban Texting While Driving, For NowPublished: October 2, 2012, 9:32 AM
City leaders in Mitchell have decided to leave the issue of texting while driving in the hands of state lawmakers.
Mayor Ken Tracy had suggested that Mitchell consider following the lead of Sioux Falls and ban texting while driving, but the City Council voted Monday to instead urge the Legislature next year to enact a statewide ban.
The city of Huron also is considering a ban, and Watertown's city attorney has been asked to draft a proposal for discussion.
