Distracted driving is not bad luck. It is a deliberate choice. Get over to the curb if your message is urgent!
As a resident of Florida I'm tired of seeing people driving erratically on i-95 & city streets, because they are busy taking selfies, looking down at their phones, or playing games...My newest pet peeve is the dash mounted cell phone with movies or TV playing for the driver to watch as he/she speeds or weaves along through traffic...These actions are no longer the exception to the rule, they are daily occurrences...Stop the madness, the ignorant need to be removed from the road for the safety of careful drivers...
I'm signing because Anthony was my hero and still is.
My most heartfelt condolences to the family of Anthony. Texting, reading texts and making and answering phone calls while driving, using a hand held device, is dangerous and unconscionable. I live for the day when this selfish practice is banned and enforcement of the ban is speedy and harsh.
I've been sobbing quietly for hours after signing the Change.Org petition and reading the tributes, watching the video, and seeing that gorgeous smile. Such a vibrant, beautiful boy and young man. My heart breaks for the loss of his young life. He was obviously so full of promise. Thank you for sharing him with the rest of the world, and for bringing attention to something that I know I'm guilty of. I will remember him the next time I'm driving and reach for my phone, and I will think of Anthony and my own precious son, and I will wait until I've pulled over or parked.
