BROOKLYN - A new simulator is showing drivers just how dangerous it can be to text behind the wheel. 

Equipped with a steering wheel and smartphone, it challenges people to text and drive, but News 12 cameras caught one person after another fail to avoid a crash. 

AT&T New York says its simulator is helping to send the simple message that no text is worth losing your life.
