Howard Schnellenberger SpeakerWith a concern about the dangers of texting and driving, former FAU head football coach and current ambassador-at-large Howard Schnellenberger has endorsed a new app that is designed to help stop the bad habit.

While many states have laws against texting and driving, Florida does not, although it can be hard to enforce in states that do with many drivers still tempted to return a text, especially when the sender asks for an urgent response. FAU alumni Joseph Riano came up with a great way to curb the urge with a new cell phone application called Free Safe Text.

The app acts like a voicemail for text messages and prevents the temptation to respond while driving. It silences all incoming text messages and automatically responds with generic ones such as “I’ll respond ASAP” or “I’m driving.”

Schnellenberger thinks that students have a problem with texting and driving and remarked, “Joe [Riano] has provided an opportunity to cure this major disease in society. It became very obvious to me that this app was something very special.”

As an ambassador to the university, Schnellenberger believes he can get the message out to students. This is an issue all over the world. And FAU is going to be the first university to step forward,” he noted.
