Fort Bend ISD high schools teaming up with SAFE 2 SAVE and State Farm throughout the month of April to spread awareness about the epidemic of distracted driving (4/12/2019)
FORT BEND ISD (April 12, 2019) – SAFE 2 SAVE is a free mobile app rewarding users for driving undistracted and encouraging accountability to loved ones. Points accrued when travelling undistracted, at least 10 mph, can be redeemed for discounts plus free items at popular restaurants like Chick-fil-A, Papa John’s, Outback Steakhouse, Baskin Robbins, La Madeleine and more! SAFE 2 SAVE is proving to change distracted driving behavior patterns - as one life lost due to distracted driving is one too many.
On April 1, the National Safety Council kicked off Distracted Driving Awareness Month. This is a united effort to bring awareness to the dangers of distracted driving and eliminate preventable deaths. Join us in spreading awareness by downloading the SAFE 2 SAVE App and sharing it with your friends and family!
State Farm is sponsoring a safe driving competition with participating high schools throughout the month of April and will be awarding prizes to the top high schools. The student council who gathers the most school participants will be awarded $1,500.
