Mitchell moves toward texting-while-driving ban

Posted:

    MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) _ The Mitchell City Council is drafting an ordinance to ban texting while driving in city limits.
 
    The Daily Republic reports that a draft ordinance will be presented at the April 1 council meeting. At least half of the eight council members support a ban, and Mayor Ken Tracy - who would cast a tie-breaking vote - has repeatedly said he favors a ban.
 
    Four South Dakota cities have instituted similar bans, including Sioux Falls. A bill that called for a statewide ban failed during this year's Legislature.
