Legal and Other Resources and Information

MADD - South Dakota Local Chapter

South Dakota needs to do much more to reduce drunk driving deaths. In 2011, a law was passed allowing for the use of ignition interlocks starting in conjunction with the state's Sobriety 24/7 program. This move limits the use of interlocks to repeat and first-time offenders with a BAC of .17 or greater. MADD asks lawmakers to strengthen DUI law and expand the current interlock law to include all convicted drunk drivers with a BAC of .08 or greater. The state could also better protect children from drunk drivers by enacting a child endangerment law.

South Dakota Department of Safety- Highway Patrol

Under the direction of 15 governors and 13 superintendents, the men and women of the South Dakota Highway Patrol moved from a reactive organization to a proactive group of men and women who anticipate changes in highway safety and enforcement techniques. The Patrol has matured into a professional law enforcement agency prepared to respond to the ever changing needs of the public it serves. The 177 members of the Highway Patrol wear the uniform and badge with pride and distinction.
