Comparing SD's Texting While Driving Ban To Other States

Comparing SD's Texting While Driving Ban To Other States

How does South Dakota's proposed texting with driving ban compare to other states? We did some checking.

According to a CBS report, South Dakota's $100 fine is slightly less than what you'll pay if you're caught texting and driving in Minnesota. Our neighboring state’s fine is $135.

The $100 fine is the same price as North Dakota’s law, but half of what you'll pay in Nebraska. The Cornhusker state has a $200 fine.

While in Iowa, you’ll only pay $30 if caught texting while driving.

The nation's highest fine is in Alaska, where drivers who are caught texting can face a $10,000 fine.
