BEND, Ore. -

All year long, we're asking you to put your phone down and text later while you're driving. Now we've got a test for you -- and you don't have to get in the car or grab your phone to take it.

An online game created by the New York Times gives you a glimpse of just how hard it is to text and drive.

We put our intern, Billy Kuder, to the test, asking him to navigate the gates, while responding to a series of texts.

At the end, a simple question: Did you see the gray lady? She's a figure that you run over if you get distracted while texting.

"No, I didn't, actually," Kuder said.

Despite missing that fictitious pedestrian, Kuder actually did better than average.

If you want to take the text, just follow this link:
