Pokémon Go Player Sideswipes Police Car

We've been saying it for a few weeks now, ever since Pokémon Go launched: Don't Catch and Drive. The addictive, nostalgic pokemon_go.jpgaugmented reality game has taken the world by storm, and the craze is now hitting our nation's roadways. From car wrecks in New York to players walking off cliffs in California , the distractions in the game are causing accidents across the country. The most recent example of the dangers of playing the game behind the wheel comes from Baltimore, MD. At 3:30 a.m. a player 'Catching and Driving' sideswipes a police car, right in front of on-duty officers. Thankfully no one was harmed and the driver, his passengers and all the officers are ok.



This is a frightening example of playing Pokémon Go behind the wheel could have easily been fatal," said Cellcontrol CEO Robert Guba. "Hopefully, this will be a positive learning experience for that driver and for others who see it," Guba said.
