Local students learned the danger of sending text messages while driving today at Helena High School.

AT&T brought a simulator car to the parking lot of the high school to let students experience the dangers of texting while driving.  Students climbed behind the wheel and attempted to drive in a virtual world, while texting.

Helena Superintendent Kent Kultgen spoke to the students, along with Superintendent of Public Instruction Denise Juneau, Mayor Jim Smith and officers from the Montana Highway Patrol.

Juneau says a state level survey reports 50% of high school students admitted to texting while driving.
