NEW YORK, NY - TAPintoTravels is at the New York Auto Show and we found a virtual reality program that may just save your young driver’s life.

Please check out AT&T’s It Can Wait virtual reality program.  It should stop your child’s texting while driving.  It is that impactful.

The display is in the basement in the right rear corner (right next to the sanitation street sweeper).  This one interactive exhibit is worth the price of admission to the New York International Auto Show.
