NBC Today show host swears on TV while trying to text and drive

Oprah Winfrey made April 30 National No Phone Zone Day, encouraging all Americans to shut down their cell phone while driving.  For the occasion, NBC Today show host Meredith Vieira was invited to try to text and drive live on TV.  The result was quite funny.

With the help of a driving simulator name Distractology 101, Vieira had to follow a simple scenario of keeping her speed up and reading incoming text messages from a cell phone.  Being spontaneous, she showed America how any normal driver would react while doing both tasks.
