    Please add an anti chess while driving statement to the following:

    Play chess everywhere
    Play chess using a touch enabled interface right from your browser.
    If you are on the road, try the native Android app, or for other devices, the mobile web app.


    It might just save some lives. The statement as is seems to promote playing chess while on the road or driving.

    At first I didn't take this seriously, as the same concept might apply to:

    do not play chess with your mobile device while surfing, especially surfing large waves with mobile devices that are not water-resistant

    do not play chess when meeting with your boss for your performance review

    however, "on the road" does imply driving. "while traveling" would be a better phrasing

    How about 'don't play chess if doing so would endanger your or someone else's life.'

    Or maybe just 'play responsibly'.

    I recall once seeing the following sign in a pedestrian-only zone: sensible peolpe don't ride bikes here; all others are forbidden to.

    I read it as "on vacation" or "while traveling". I didn't think it actually meant "while driving". But yes, more clarity is always better. And texting while driving is bad enough. Can't imagine people playing chess while driving.
