AT&T to visit USC to show texting, driving perils

Tools

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — AT&T is scheduled to visit the University of South Carolina campus to talk about the dangers of texting while driving.

The company on Thursday is offering students the opportunity to test a simulator that officials say shows how dangerous it is to try to send a text message while behind the wheel. The public can also try out the simulators.

State lawmakers are currently considering a bill that would outlaw texting while driving in South Carolina. Similar legislative efforts have failed in the past.
