Officials show off new tool in NH used to show dangers of distracted driving

New Hampshire law enforcement officials are using a new tool to educate people of the dangers of texting and driving.

Drivers were given the chance to try out the AT&T "It Can Wait" driving simulator.

With the help of virtual goggles- people were able to experience just how quickly a distraction, like a cell phone, can be deadly.

Marilyn Bachman shared her message, whose husband, former Amherst Fire Chief, John Bachman, was killed by a distracted driver in 2013.

Since her husband's death, Bachman has devoted her time to speaking out about the dangers of texting and driving.
