Rapid City Drivers Receive Costly Reminder About Texting Ban

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.
