SD House panel pumps the brakes on speeding legislation


State lawmakers have pumped the brakes on a bill that would punish repeat speeders in South Dakota.

The house transportation committee stalled a bill that would have added speeding to the list of offenses that will cost you that driver's license.

Drivers who rack up 15 points in a 12-month period for reckless offenses have licenses suspended. This, ironically, includes driving too slow but not driving too fast, said the bill's sponsor, Representative Steve Hickey. However, the committee followed Representative Lance Russell's concern that it would create an "undue hardship" on drivers.

They deferred the bill to the 41st legislative day, which doesn't exist.
