Teens learn danger of texting and driving
ALBANY -- More than a third of teens admit to texting while driving.
Statistics like that led New York State Senator Joe Robach to team up with AT&T in an effort to teach the dangers of texting behind the wheel. At the capitol on Monday, drivers buckled up behind a 3-D simulator and had to respond to tet messages while trying to follow the rules of the road.
Organizers say the demo shows drivers just how dangerous the behavior can be.
