$100 Tickets Issued to Texting Drivers in Rapid City

One hundred dollar tickets will now be issued to texting drivers starting July 1st. According to a Rapid City Journal article, the Rapid City Police Department has been issuing warnings since the middle of May. The South Dakota state texting ban also goes into effect July 1st, but is not as strict as the Rapid City ban which enforces texting while driving as a primary offense.

For more information on the texting ban, visit our archive.
