PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – It is estimated that 100,000 crashes every year involve drivers who are texting behind the wheel.

This week, people at CONSOL Energy Center got a chance to see how dangerous it can be.

A texting while driving simulator was set up by AT&T.

The simulator looks like a car, but it uses a computer to simulate driving down a street.

The simulator is part of AT&T’s “It Can Wait” campaign, which highlights the risks of texting while driving.

In Pennsylvania, texting while driving is illegal.
