EUGENE, Ore. -- Students at Sheldon High School experienced firsthand just how dangerous it is to look down at your phone while driving.
AT&T's "It Can Wait" campaign was created to remind drivers to keep their eyes on the road. The message is one the Eugene Police Department, Eugene 4J, and AT&T are hoping to drive into young drivers.
The campaign includes a virtual reality simulator to the high school so students can better understand how dangerous distracting driving really is.
"It was really scary...I mean every time the phone went off you would look at it and then almost crash into someone or like, almost hit someone. So it's not really safe to text and drive," said Leisa Washington, student.
Officers with the Eugene Police Department were also there to answer any questions students had about distracted driving, best practices, and local laws.
