jenrgw What is Preventing South Dakota From Creating a Texting Ban?

The majority of states have, or are seriously considering, a ban that would prevent drivers from texting and driving.  South Dakota, however, is not.

According to the Associated Press, a proposed texting and driving ban would face serious opposition in the state legislature.  The Senate Republican Leader has told the media that a texting and driving ban is just not a priority for him right now.  Other politicians have cited concerns about excessive government interference in people’s rights as a reason to vote against a texting while driving ban.

What do you think? Are these valid reasons to oppose distracted driving legislation or not?
