I'm signing because Anthony was my hero and still is.
I am so sorry for your loss. I just want to say, I am 53 years old, and I know that technology is changing everyday, but I am sick to death of people having phones attached to their heads. No communication with people anymore, just texting. Not only do they need to abolish texting and driving in Florida, it should be nationwide. So many innocent people are being killed everyday, because texting someone and taking your eyes off the road, is more important. What kind of world is this becoming? As I am writing this, I am looking at your son, and it just saddens me, such a nice looking young man, who had a future ahead of him, and his life was snapped away because of texting, this has got to STOP! NO MORE TEXTING AND DRIVING NATIONWIDE is what I say. Again, I am so sorry for your loss.
Anthony Branca's death was preventable. Texting and driving should be illegal in every state, including Florida. Please, pass legislature in Florida making texting while driving a primary offense. Save lives!
I can't believe how far behind Florida is! My life is just as important in Florida as it is in California. So, why is it Florida doesn't think so?! PLEASE UPDATE YOUR FLORIDA LAW to reflect the current data that proves that first offense distracted driving laws lower accident rates! Law makers, don't wait until it is your child killed, like my friend, Demetrius, had to suffer. A secondary offense may mean they don't get a ticket or in trouble until they have already killed your child. Let's help our society prevent these tragedies by educating the public and setting up preventative laws!
I know nothing can bring back your beloved son Anthony, but 100% behind you. #Bandana Army. Dear Florida Legislature, Will you stand up for Anthony and other victims of distracted driving by passing laws that protect innocent victims? Everywhere we look, including in automobiles, technology is supreme and people pay closer attention to their phones than they do to people. Let's encourage good driving, by ensuring that people put down their phones while in the car. Thank you and God Bless.
