Posted: Updated:
SALEM, Ohio -

The dangers of texting and driving took center stage at a special event Wednesday in Salem.

The message “It Can Wait" was the theme of the anti-texting and driving seminar at Salem Regional Medical Center.

Congressman Bill Johnson was there and he talked about the dangers of texting while behind the wheel.

Local police were also on hand to talk about what they see on the roadways with distracted drivers.

AT&T brought a driving simulator to show first hand just how dangerous it is for a driver to take their eyes off the road even for a split second.

AT&T research shows that seven in 10 people engage in Smartphone activities while driving which includes checking email, posting to social media, playing games, snapping selfies, and other activities.
