AT&T showed Charleston residents the dangers of texting while driving Saturday with a virtual driving simulator at its retail store on Savannah Highway.
The simulator was part of AT&T's national "It Can Wait" program. The campaign challenges drivers across the country to pledge to not text and drive.
Charleston City Councilman Bill Moody and AT&T Regional Director of External Affairs Jack Mitchell were at the event Saturday, which took place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The event gave people the opportunity to sit behind the wheel of a virtual driving simulator, where they would then attempted to maneuver a car around a city while texting.
According the the cell phone company, drivers who text while driving are 23 times more likely to be involved in an accident than non-texting drivers.
