Top tips for renting a car in South Dakota

  • Are you traveling to South Dakota for business or leisure? South Dakota car rental services give you a unique opportunity to discover the Mount Rushmore State at your convenience. However, the best driving experience starts with knowing the basics of South Dakota driving laws. The highest speed limit you’ll find in South Dakota is 75 mph. The speed limit might vary from county to county or place to place. Be sure to pay attention to speed limits in different counties as you drive through the state. Additionally, South Dakota has one of the strictest DUI laws in the nation. You should avoid driving in the state if you’ve consumed any alcohol, as penalties can range from license suspension to a fine, all the way to a jail term of up to 12 months.
  • Driving without insurance or with insufficient coverage is against the law in South Dakota. So is driving without a valid driver’s license or a suspended license. Making U-turns in non-passing or unsafe zones is a misdemeanor in the state. South Dakota requires seatbelt use whenever the car is in drive, for the driver and for all passengers. There is a fine for seatbelt violation, so be sure to inspect the car you’re about to rent to be certain the seatbelts are working. Children under the age of eight must be fastened in appropriate car seats while riding in the car, and pets and children must never be left in the car unattended.
  • Winter weather makes life harder for motorists in South Dakota. If you’re planning to visit the state during winter, you’re better off renting a car that’s equipped with snow tires. For safety purposes, always pay attention to the weather forecast and the road conditions before you embark on your road trip. When you’re on the road, watch out for those electronic messaging signs on the interstates. These signs usually provide motorists with information about road closures or potentially dangerous road conditions. Be sure to carry your winter travel safety kit with you (e.g., blankets, etc.). Finally, always fill your gas tank before setting out for your road trips.
