Car Insurance Rates Shoot Up Because of Pokemon Go Popularity

Pokemon, car insurance, Pokemon accident


Pokémon Go is a free-mium location-based mobile game developed by Niantic for iOS and Android devices, it contains some but not all aspects of an augmented reality game. It uses the  GPS and the camera of compatible devices. Players can capture, battle, and train virtual creatures, called Pokémon, who appear on device screens as though in the real world and that's where the problem lies this can harm the player specially if they are on the road or driving.

People who are too engage in the game while they are walking or driving can cause serious accident. A lot of people fear that car insurance rates will go up because of Pokemon go popularity. Let’s look at this issue more closely.

The National Highway Institute is one of the many organizations that have released warning about the dangers of driving they have also warn that by not paying attention to the road it dramatically increases the chance of an accident. 

We all know the dangers of being distracted while driving is and Pokémon Go can be worst than texting-while-driving it is a distraction that can cause serious accidents.  In fact, in the short time since its release, there have been reported accidents in every place where it has been released. 

In playing Pokemon Go using your device (smartphone, tablet etc.) the place around you will be filled with Pokémon monster that you can capture, battle, and train. You will need to look in your device to see them, and you need to go to places to capture this Pokemon or hatch an egg which can be dangerous specially if the players main focus is the game and not what going on around the player since the game requires that the player go out into the world around you to collect Pokémon. A crucial part of the game is finding these Pokémon hiding in the real world and catching them.  This is the reason why car insurance rates shoot up with Pokemon go release.  Not paying attention to the road will of course dramatically increase the risk of accidents and injury.  Similar to talking on the phone or texting, Pokémon Go takes your attention away from being a responsible driver or pedestrian.
