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.
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.
My son is also 19, and I don't want the same thing to happen to him! What a handsome boy Anthony was. Such a nice smile. It's tragic, really really senseless and unforgivable.
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!
Anthony's life and everyone's life is worth much more than a text or a glance at Facebook.
