BCHS brings in texting and driving simulator

By Jack Tiebout
Belle Chasse High School students were given a crash course on the perils of multi-tasking while driving when the school brought a texting and driving simulator to campus on February 7 and 10. Students wore goggles that displayed a virtual road with several obstacles as they sat in a real sedan and tried to shoot off texts to a nearby accomplice.
