Sioux Falls City Council passes texting and driving ban

Posted: Updated:

The Sioux Falls City Council voted 7-0 Tuesday night to ban texting while operating a motor vehicle.

The ordinance reads like this: "No person may operate or be in actual physical control of a motor vehicle while using an electronic communication device to compose, read, or send an electronic message when the vehicle is in motion or a part of traffic."

The ordinance will take effect twenty days after the vote.

Tonight on KSFY News at 10:00, we'll hear from citizens and Sioux Falls city leaders for their take on this landmark decision.
