LET’S DRIVE! AT&T introduces new texting and driving simulator

If you think it’s OK to text and drive, then go ahead, give it a try.

No seriously, let’s drive!

As part of AT&T’s Campaign “It Can Wait” against texting and driving, AT&T has created an attention-grabbing simulator that recreates traffic and texts you in real time. The interactive simulator educates users on the extreme levels of risk that texting puts them in while driving on the road.

Although the simulation plays similar to a video game, the tone is not to be taken lightly. The challenge hits home two strong messages.

  • Texting and driving safely can’t be done. Period.
  • It’s one thing to watch an award winning documentary about the permanent damage caused by texting and driving, but it’s quite another to actually cause a deadly accident due to a text, tweet, post, or email.

To remind yourself of the dangers of texting and driving, then make sure to download the simulator.
