CONSIDER THIS: Pokemon Go - Be Smart

Source: WLBT Source: WLBT

For so many, video gaming has replaced outdoor recreation.  Now, a new twist in gaming has taken the nation by storm and sent people outside.

Pokemon Go combines the mobile screen with the real world sending people on quests in their neighborhoods finding virtual Pokemon characters.

Consider This:

It’s great that Pokemon Go encourages people to go outside and explore the real world.  Unfortunately, walking around with your head down playing a virtual game can put you in danger in the real world. In fact, someone was playing Pokemon Go while driving and crashed into a Baltimore police car. Seriously?

Get outside. Get some exercise, but be smart. After all, you won't catch many Pokemon characters if someone steals your phone because you’re not paying attention.
