State Capitol simulation event to show dangers of driving with phones
BATON ROUGE - The Louisiana State Capitol will host a virtual reality simulation to show the consequences of using phones while driving.
The event is a part of AT&T’s “It Can Wait” campaign which urges drivers to keep their eyes on the road and not their phones.
The campaign started in 2010 and initially focused on not texting and driving, but now it has expanded to broader dangers of smart phone use behind the wheel.
Samsung, Bose, and Google are supporting the event and the simulation will be delivered through Samsung Gear VR and Bose headphones.
The event will be Wednesday, Mar. 16, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Legislative Plaza of the State Capitol.
