Distracted driving is a real threat to the safety of every motorist, passenger, bicyclist and pedestrian in South Carolina. Unfortunately, too many people fail to take this threat seriously. They think they can text, browse Facebook, or take a selfie safely. Some people even think they can play games in a world of virtual or augmented reality while driving.
As ridiculous as this might sound, there is research to suggest that last year, people playing the game “Pokémon Go” while driving were responsible for a sharp increase in crashes.
