AT&T brought its “It Can Wait” campaign to Central Texas to create awareness about the dangers of texting and driving.

The virtual simulator stopped at the Belton Library and allowed users to have the opportunity to experience various texting and driving related scenarios, including a deadly car crash - without actually having to experience it in real life.

Organizers of the event said that they hope the simulator will help people understand that there are potentially deadly consequences of texting and driving.

Participants of the event were able to sign a pledge saying that they would “not text and drive.” They join 8 million others who have taken the pledge since the campaign began 6 years ago.
