Tony Anschutz is on a mission to save lives. On August 17 Tony will begin a solo, two-month, 16,000-mile motorcycle adventure to raise awareness about the dangers of cell phone use while driving – a behavior that causes 636,000 crashes and 2,600 deaths annually. Tony’s "Ride the Americas" trip will take him through North American crossroads and big cities, where he will stop to meet people and advance the National Safety Council’s call for a nationwide ban on cell phone use while driving.
For Tony, the mission is personal.

I really could not put my finger on it, but I just felt that our existence was too easy. Too planned. Too, dare I say, normal.
