Police and AT&T will use a driving simulation game to teach students about the dangers of texting and driving Tuesday at George Washington High School in the Richmond district.

The event, part of AT&T’s “It Can Wait” campaign, uses a 3-D driving simulator in which someone navigates a city and responds to texts on an accompanying smartphone.

If a driver speeds, drives too slowly, breaks laws or is involved in an accident while texting, the game ends.

AT&T also has developed an app, DriveMode, that gives an auto-reply message that the user is driving and will respond later.
