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.
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.
I live in Florida. Every day I see people with their phones in their hands too busy texting and not paying attention. They are a danger on the roads. They don't seem to think that they will hurt anyone. My children's lives are more important than that text!!
I am signing this because every day that I get behind the wheel to drive, I take a look at my surroundings, and it is truly scary the amount of people that are distracted with their phones while driving. I am afraid to drive in these conditions. And no one appears to be doing anything about it. This needs to stop. Someone's life may be in danger each and every time.
