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.
After seeing the Change.org petition, I wanted to know more about Anthony and the life he had led leading up to the day he was no longer with us. What a child, boy, and man he was. This world is definitely worse off for his absence. The more I read, the more his story touched me. Nothing is so important that it’s worth risking the life of yourself or someone else. Where many would wallow in sadness (completely understandable) you’ve turned it around and tried to get as much of a positive outcome as possible. For that, you should be commended. I have seven children myself and I can’t imagine what losing one would do to our family. Know that Anthony (Bob) Branca is in my thoughts.
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...
Anthony's life and everyone's life is worth much more than a text or a glance at Facebook.
