Will Texting And Driving Be A Thing Of The Past?

February 5, 2013, 8:21 AM by Austin Hoffman

Will Texting And Driving Be A Thing Of The Past?
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Texting and driving has been a hot legislative topic for some time and it is once again making the rounds in Pierre.

There are two bills looking at texting and driving. One focusing on teens and the other is looking at all drivers.

Senate Bill 142 would make it illegal for anyone to text behind the wheel unless the car is parked or if they're contacting law enforcement. You would, however, still be able to punch in phone numbers to make a phone call.
    
The other bill, Senate Bill 106, would make it illegal for any driver under the age of 18 with a learners permit to use a phone while driving.
    
On Monday, it passed the Senate Transportation Committee and will now head to the Senate floor.

Senate Bill 142, making texting illegal for everyone, has yet to be scheduled but is also in the Senate Transportation committee.
