PIERRE – A South Dakota legislative committee is looking at a package of bills aimed at reducing teen traffic fatalities and injuries.

One of the measures would ban beginning drivers from using cellphones behind the wheel until they can get an unrestricted license at age 16.

Another bill would require those with learners’ permits to wait longer before driving unaccompanied by an adult. Yet another proposal would set up a coordinated drivers’ education system with statewide standards for course content, instruction, testing and certification of instructors.

The House Transportation Committee is holding a hearing on the bills Tuesday.
