ALBANY, N.Y. –  Texting and driving can be a deadly combination as concern on the roads grows every year with hundreds of thousands of crashes each year. 

According to AAA, the days between Labor Day and Memorial Day are the 100 deadliest days for teenage drivers. Experts say that has a lot to do with texting while driving.

AT&T and the New York State Senate are teaming up on Monday to bring a traveling texting and driving simulator to the State Capitol. Leaders hope that participants will be able to see how dangerous a single text, tweet, or email can be while in a car.

The simulator will be in Albany at the Legislative Office Building on Monday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. It is open to the public and parents can bring their teenager and their smartphone to test the simulator.
