Well you knew this would happen. People are not paying attention while driving due to playing Pokemon Go. There are numerous reports of people getting in car accidents while playing the game. Common sense should prevail here but of course that would be too much to ask of people.
Car accidents have already taken place all over as a result of the game. Texas A&M University Police tweeted that a vehicle struck an illegally parked car, noting that the “First driver had exited to catch a Pokémon.”
The following day a driver reportedly hit a tree while playing “Pokemon GO” in upstate New York. Police in Louisiana stated that an accident was caused by a driver that suddenly stopped in a roadway and was rear ended because the driver wanted to catch a Pokemon. Tow truck drivers in Louisiana have also noted an increase in calls as drivers have driven into ditches while not paying attention because of the game.
One girl was hit by a car, others fell off a cliff, and the list goes on and on. Enjoy the game folks but be sure to take care and don't put yourself or others at harm while doing so.
