Passing a texting while driving ban is a big move for Sioux Falls but it's still raising a lot of questions, particularly when it comes to enforcement.
The American Civil Liberties Union of North and South Dakota tells KSFY the biggest concern deals with privacy and due-process of each driver that is pulled over.
According to the proposed ban, an officer can stop a driver and write up a ticket if you are believed to be sending, composing or receiving a message.
Compared to other driving laws, the ACLU knows there are still unanswered questions of privacy when it comes to officers pulling over and ticketing each driver.
"The texting ban is a little greyer, you have to peer into people's cars, take a closer notice at what they're doing exactly. Then the whole question is what happens after the stop and what level of intrusion can come about," Robert Doody said.
Upon becoming a law, Doody says it will take awhile before things are sorted out. That's because laws like these to make streets safer, when it comes to technology, are still a new trend nationwide with challenges that will stick around for awhile.
