Simulator brings dangers of texting and driving to life

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A special event at Qualcomm Stadium Friday showed San Diegans just how dangerous it is to text and drive.

"The message is simple and that is that no text message is worth a life. It takes only one or two seconds for somebody to be distracted by their phone when they're driving," It Can Wait tour manager Griffin Hagler said.

AT&T's It Can Wait event gave folks a chance to operate a virtual reality simulator that brought the dangers of texting and driving to life.

The National Safety Council says texting drivers are 23 times more likely to be in an accident.
