A new display at La Plaza Mall in McAllen aims to bring attention to the dangers of distracted driving.

The Talk, Text, Crash exhibit included a distracted driving simulator that included texting and talking on the phone while driving.

“Unfortunately, in Texas, distracted driving crashes increased by 10% last year,” Texas Department of Transportation spokesman Ray Pedraza said. “Since 2017, another 2,000 Texans have died because of distracted driving crashes."

Six of those deaths in 2022 happened in the TxDOT Pharr district.
