VR distracted driving simulator comes to BK

Posted: Updated:
BARCLAYS CENTER -

A virtual reality distracted driving simulator recently made its way to Brooklyn.

The nationwide virtual reality simulator made a stop at the Plaza at Barclays Center.

The tour focuses on the dangers of smartphone distractions while driving.

The experience is part of the AT&T 'It Can Wait campaign,' which urges drivers to keep their eyes on the road, not on their phones.

The campaign began with a focus on not texting and driving, but later expanded to the broader dangers of smartphone use behind the wheel.

The NYPD and the Department of Transportation paired with AT&T to bring the VR simulator to Brooklyn.
