Transportation workers from Kentucky Utilities received a first hand lesson Monday on the dangers of texting while driving.

A distracted driving simulator was brought in.

It allowed about fifty drivers to test their texting and driving skills while attempting to answer the phone.

Event organizers say it's a proactive way to keep workers off of their phones while driving.

Kentucky Utilities says it requires drivers to sign a contract agreeing that they will not text and drive.
