Teenagers at Clovis High School got behind the wheel while texting on cell phones.
The simulated event took place in the school's parking lot.
A Clovis Police Officer sat next to each teen.
Teens drove through an obstacle course filled with cones while texting.
One student said the experience was eye-opening.
"If I were on the road, I would be swerving, going straight. I just don't recommend texting and driving, it's not safe," Antonio Mendez said.
Officials say the effort aimed to teach more than four-thousand teens to stop texting while driving.
