As if we really needed to say this, but you really shouldn’t be doing anything that will cause a distraction while driving. Yet, there are still plenty of people out there that enjoy browsing their phones on the go that could very well potentially put themselves and others in harm’s way. Now it’s been noted that California is seeking to make Pokemon Go and driving illegal.
We’re not sure if California is late to the party or not since it seems that a number of daily users for Pokemon Go has greatly dropped. Regardless, according to GameSpot, it seems that the current state of California governor, Jerry Brown, has sent out a new bill proposal to make Pokemon Go while driving illegal.
This would go hand-in-hand with the other anti-texting and drive laws placed within the state. After so many accidents have been reported so far, there’s a real yearn to keep everyone safe and focused. Even the developers behind the hit Pokemon Go application, Niantic, has attempted to sway gamers from using the app while driving by requiring gamers to admit that they are in the passenger seat rather than behind the wheel.
Perhaps if this bill still fails to keep the streets safe from gamers trying to catch them all, then we could see an even more drastic measure from the developers by limiting how fast a gamer can be traveling to spot and catch Pokemon.
Are you still enjoying Pokemon Go? With so many gamers starting to move on from the application, it will be interesting to see if this problem continues in the coming months.
