A new phone app designed to discourage distracted driving has launched in the Cypress and Jersey Village areas. Officials with Safe 2 Save, which was founded by a former Texas A&M student in College Station, celebrated this morning, Dec. 14, with a launch party at Chick-Fil-A Cypress in Towne Lake.

The app allows users to rack up points that can be redeemed for rewards at local businesses. The user simply has to open the app before starting a trip and will then receive two points for every minute of driving undistracted at a speed of at least 15 miles per hour, founder Marci Corry said.

"I hope that the app provides greater incentive for people to stay focused on the road when they drive to keep their communities and loved ones safe," Corry said in a press release announcing the app's launch.

Users can receive and make calls, but are discouraged from texting, emailing, playing games and searching for music. The app also includes a list of businesses where points can be redeemed and what rewards are available.

The following businesses and restaurants are among those participating in Cypress:

  • MELT Gourmet Grilled Cheese
    14030 Telge Road, Cypress

  • Bahama Buck's
    14030 Telge Road, Ste. J, Cypress

  • 1st Choice Collision
    11638 Telge Road, Cypress

  • The Shack Burger Resort
    12710 Telge Road, Cypress

  • Glo Sun Spa
    17333 Spring Cypress Road, Cypress

  • The Cupcake Cowgirls Bakery
    10750 Barker Cypress Road, Cypress

  • Baskin Robbins
    13040 Louetta Road, Ste. 244, Cypress

  • Salata
    17515 Spring Cypress Road, Cypress


In an email correspondence leading up to the launch, Corry indicated to Community Impact Newspaper that she was in the process of adding as many as 35 businesses to the app, including upscale casual restaurants, retail, coffee, entertainment, fitness and automotive businesses.

The free app can be downloaded online from the Apple Store or the Google Play store. The Dec. 14 launch also extends the app's reach to businesses in The Woodlands area, Corry said.

Safe 2 Save has about 34,000 users and parters with more than 200 businesses across Texas.
