Frazier Challenges Legislators, Capitol Staff and Media to Join the “It Can Wait” Movement

Sacramento, CA Today, Assemblymember Jim Frazier (D-Oakley) partnered with AT&T to bring a virtual reality simulator to the State Capitol. The simulator allowed legislators, capitol staff and members of the media to experience firsthand the dangers of texting and driving.

“Cell phone use while driving has been illegal for over five years, yet it is still the cause of more than 200,000 crashes a year,” said Assemblymember Frazier. “For most of us, rehearsed messages and words on paper don’t hit home the way an interactive experience does. I have brought the AT&T virtual reality simulator to the Capitol to emphasize that driving requires an individual’s absolute attention – hands on the wheel, eyes on the road, and mind focused on operating the vehicle.”
