TxDOT’s Virtual Reality Distracted Driving Campaign Comes to Civic Center Thursday

Thursday April 19th, at the Hopkins County Civic Center Exhibit Hall from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., TxDOT’s “Heads up, Texas” campaign in partnership with AT&T It Can Wait, will bring a distracted driving virtual reality experience on site to demonstrate the impact of distracted driving.

In recognition of National Distracted Driving Month, the Texas Department of Transportation is launching its “Heads up, Texas” campaign to remind drivers that their undivided attention to the road could save a life.

Partnering with AT&T It Can Wait, TxDOT aims to change distracted-driving behaviors that last year resulted in 100,687 crashes, 444 deaths and 2,889 serious injuries. With state legislation passing a texting-while-driving ban effective Sept. 1, 2017 – making it illegal to read, write or send a text while driving in Texas – TxDOT and AT&T It Can Wait will bring a virtual reality distracted driving experience to 19 cities in Texas this April to educate and connect with local communities.
