Speaking on cell phone while driving was already a great concern as it causes quite a lot of road accidents and now people have began playing video games while driving which has further increased the possibilities of accidents.
In Massachusetts, Lamar Hickson, a 26 yrs old driver, has been arrested by the police on charges of causing one of the worst highway accidents. Lamar was playing “Pokemon Go” on the newly launched Pokemon app while driving and he stopped his car mid-highway to catch a Pikachu.
This is what he told the cops,
“Sh*t if you wanna catch them all you gotta risk it all so I put my car in park and started tossing these balls”.
What charges will probably be framed on Hickson are not confirmed yet. Good part is that nobody has been seriously injured; however, it has definitely raised an alarm and playing games while driving can also play a giant role in future accidents. Actually, one of the victims told that he was too playing game.
In the words of Fredrick Jones, an officer,
“Texting and driving was already a very serious issue, but now playing Pokemon Go and driving could make things worse.”
The officer further mentioned that now the accidents happening due to mobiles can increase by double or triple. Since then hashtag #dontpokemongoanddrive is trending on the social media networks.
