Consider This: Personal Safety is more important than a video game

PINE BELT (WDAM) - For so many, video gaming has far too often replaced outdoor recreation.  Now, a new twist in gaming has taken the nation by storm and finally sending people outside again. Pokemon Go combines a mobile screen with the real world, sending people on quests in their communities to find virtual Pokemon characters.

It is nice Pokemon Go encourages people to go outside and explore the real world… Unfortunately, walking around with heads down looking at a screen can lead to accidents and other dangers. Police and the Better Business Bureau are warning gamers to be aware of their surroundings and walk with their heads up to remain safe.

Consider This: Personal safety is far more important than moving to the next level of a game.
