AT&T’s It Can Wait campaign shares a simple message: Keep your eyes on the road, not on your phone. The virtual reality simulator drives home this message in an effort to make roads and highways safer.

Now in its fifth year, AT&T's campaign has evolved as smartphone driving distractions have grown beyond texting to social media, web surfing, selfies and video chatting. People who use the simulator experience firsthand the dangers of distracted driving.

For a realistic experience about the dangers of distracted driving come visit the Library on Wednesday. It's a safe way to learn an important lesson.
