    HURON, SD (CNN) -- Put down the cell phone and the breakfast sandwich.

    News stations in South Dakota report the city of Huron has approved a tough new ban on "distracted driving."

    The new law makes texting while driving a primary offense. That means officers can pull drivers over simply for doing that.

    People caught texting and driving will be fined $100.

    Under the new law, you can also get a ticket if you're eating, reading the paper or putting on make-up in the mirror while driving.
