DOT wants to ban wireless systems

The state Department of Transportation seeks to prohibit wireless systems from placing infrastructure in the right of way along South Dakota’s interstate and non-interstate highways. The state Transportation Commission plans a public hearing Oct. 27 at 9:30 a.m. CT at the Becker-Hansen building in Pierre. The rules information is here and also here. DOT officials say they don’t have enough information about this technology yet and want more time to consider the matter.
