RHINELANDER - Many teens admit they text while they drive. Driving safety experts worry the dangerous trend is on the rise because teens don't really understand how dangerous distracted driving can be.
Some Rhinelander High School students got a better understanding of the dangers after they tested their driving skills with a texting simulator Thursday.
Traffic cones were hit, dragged, and crushed while students were using the simulator. But driving safety experts say that's exactly what some students needed to see to stay safe in the future.
