University HS students get distracted driving demonstration

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. – Students at University High School will get to see the impact of distracted driving with help from a 3D simulator on Tuesday.

An AT&T Survey showed nearly half of adult commuters admitted to texting while driving. Of that, 98 percent of those same drivers admitted sending a text or email while driving was not safe. In a study done by Liberty Mutual, 27 percent of teens report texting and driving, 68 percent of teens admit to using apps while driving and 80 percent of them felt app use was not distracting.

The 3D virtual simulator set up at University High School is all part of the “It Can Wait” movement by AT&T. It is committed to ending the deadly practice of texting while driving. The message is to keep your eyes on the road and not on your phone.
