Rapid City Police Begin Enforcing Texting Ban

Rapid City Police Begin Enforcing Texting Ban

The Rapid City Police Department says it began enforcing a citywide texting-while-driving ban Friday, but will not yet be handing out citations.

The department says officers will be looking for inattentive drivers and will only issue warnings for now. They'll also hand out informational pamphlets, which they say is their attempt to change the culture of texting and driving with a six-week public awareness campaign.

Dialing a number and talking on the phone is legal, but things like texting, tweeting or Facebook messaging while driving are not.

The department expects to begin issuing citations July 1 when the statewide ban goes into effect. The fine will be $100.
