The Rapid City Police department is cracking down on the texting and driving ban issued in summer 2014. Ordinance #5988 makes texting while driving a primary offense. In Rapid City, if police see you texting, they can pull you over and issue a $100 ticket. KOTA reported that in less than 1 hour this week, Rapid City Police pulled over 16 cars for texting. Seven of these drivers received a citation.
