Practice Texting while Driving

You HAVE to try this site and Pass it on to others. I was very distracted while driving and texting..... YIKES!

Richard Byrne had this post at his excellent blog:
The New York Times has an excellent interactive game that every teen driver or aspiring driver should play at least once. Gauging Your Distraction requires players to try to read and reply to three text messages while negotiating lanes of traffic. The game ends when all three messages have been sent. I gave the game a try and found it to be quite challenging.

Applications for Education
Gauging Your Distraction is an excellent activity to incorporate into a driver training program.
