LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS111) -- There's a brand new way to keep you from texting and driving and it all starts on your cell phone. It's a free app called "Safe Text."
All you have to do is download the app and press the "on" button before you start to drive.
Anyone who sends you a text you will get an automatic reply back.
Then when you park your vehicle, just turn off the app and all your texts will go through.
Former UofL football coach Howard Schnellenberger is the spokesperson and teamed up with the creator to come up with the app.
