AAA Carolinas wants to show the dangers of texting while driving with a demonstration of what it's like behind the wheel.
The organization's Foundation for Traffic Safety will offer golf cart rides Thursday on a driving range at Lowe's Motor Speedway.
Organizers will provide a behind-the-wheel live test involving both talking and texting while driving. A bicyclist who survived an accident involving a texting driver also will speak at the event.
Legislation to ban North Carolina drivers from writing text messages and e-mails is gaining momentum in the Senate. A judiciary
committee passed a House bill May 19.
