A Carrollton woman studying at Southern Methodist University created an app in hopes of reducing the amount of people texting while driving.

“Just Drive” was created by Neha Husein, a junior at SMU. Husein was rear ended by a driver who was texting a few years ago and began a search to find a way to prevent accidents like hers from happening to others.

“Ever since then I’m so paranoid when I drive. I just constantly feel like people are texting, and I am going to get bumped into because people aren’t paying attention,” Husein said.

She decided to make the “Just Drive” app while doing a class project when she was studying abroad in South Africa. WATCH
