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.

WGGB encourages readers to share their thoughts and engage in healthy dialogue about the issues. Comments containing personal attacks, profanity, offensive language or advertising will be removed. Please use the report comment function for any posts you feel should be reviewed. Thank you.
