COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP/CBS Charlotte) — AT&T is spending some time at the South Carolina Statehouse to talk about the dangers of texting while driving.

The company on Wednesday is offering lawmakers the opportunity to test a simulator that officials say shows how dangerous it is to try to send a text message while behind the wheel.

Members of the public can also try out the simulators.

State lawmakers are currently considering a bill that would outlaw texting while driving in South Carolina. Similar legislative efforts have failed in the past.

In North Carolina however, there has been a ban on texting while driving since 2009.
