South Dakota ranked last for highway safety


Sioux Falls, SD (KELO-AM) A national advocacy group says that South Dakota is last in the nation for highway safety laws.

Advocates For Highway And Auto Safety, based near Washington D-C, issues an annual reports on transportation related laws across the country.

Group spokeswoman, Cathy Chase, tells KELO-AM that South Dakota needs, for example, stronger seatbelt laws, a mandatory helmet law and a texting-while-driving ban. She says a texting driver is equivalent to a driver with a .08 blood-alcohol concentration level.

Sioux Falls has a texting-while-driving ban and there is a move afoot in this year's State Legislature for a state-wide ban.
