Senate refuses to reconsider points for speeding

Posted: Updated:

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - The South Dakota Senate has refused to reconsider a measure that would have given South Dakota the option to suspend the licenses of drivers who repeatedly speed.

The Senate Transportation Committee killed the bill last Wednesday, but Republican Sen. Craig Tieszen on Monday tried to force the bill to the full Senate floor. Tieszen's motion received 11 of the 12 needed votes.

Motorists can lose their licenses if they accumulate too many points for moving violations, including drunken driving, reckless driving and running a stop sign. But no points are assessed for speeding.
