State Police teach teens about dangers of distracted driving

State Police and other highway officials visited Boston College High School Wednesday to teach students about driving safely.

Students were given the chance to try out a special simulator that shows the dangers of driving while distracted. Those who tried it called it a "wake-up call" about not using their phone while driving.

The simulator is part of a mobile classroom that visits high schools to educate young drivers.
