Southeast Texas students learn the importance of not texting and driving
KFDM News - We're aware of the dangers of texting and driving, but it's always good to be reminded.
The Texas Department of Transportation brought distracted driving simulators to Nederland and P-NG High School.

AT&T donated the simulators to TxDOT to bring awareness of how deadly texting and driving can be.
