Charleston , Kanawha County , West Virginia 

The West Virginia International auto show was more than just flashy new cars. It was full of fun and games for the kids and a sobering reminder to stay safe behind the wheel.

From cool rides to dancing robots, there was a lot to do at the annual auto show that wrapped up at the Charleston Civic Center on Sunday.

There also were simulators that show people just how dangerous distracted driving can be.

On Sunday, Eyewitness News and Stephens Auto Center brought our “texting and driving” simulator to the auto show.

Drivers who took the virtual reality test said that it is an eye-opener.

The simulator’s co-sponsor said texting while driving is becoming an epidemic.

You can take the no text zone pledge at wchstv.com or at the Stephens Auto Center in Danville.
