Allstate's distracted driving simulator comes to Ann Arbor

How dangerous is it to text and drive? Allstate is bringing a distracted driving simulator to the University of Michigan before the Wolverines football game to show you what could happen if you're texting and driving.

Meghan Cass from Allstate was in the back lot Friday morning to show us how the simulator works. Almost 3,500 people died in 2015 from texting and driving, an increase of 10 percent from the previous year.

Ryan Ermanni took the simulator for a test drive. As soon as he started texting, he crashed the simulator, twice. 

But there will be more than a simulator on campus, there will also be kiosks in place for you to take the pledge not to text and drive. 

Texting and driving is illegal in Michigan and police have been stepping up their patrols for distracted driving all year.
