South Dakota Town Considering Banning Food in Cars

(CNN) — Put down the cell phone and the breakfast sandwich.

News stations in South Dakota report the city of Huron has approved a tough new ban on “distracted driving.”

The new law makes texting while driving a primary offense.

That means officers can pull drivers over simply for doing that.

People caught texting and driving will be fined 100-dollars.

Under the new law, you can also get a ticket if you’re eating, reading the paper or putting on make-up in the mirror while driving.
