Pokémon Go : Dangers while driving

Pokémon GO - Drive with care | Can Drive Driving LessonsPokémon Go : The dangers while driving

Pokémon Go is a very popular game that encourages many people of different ages to explore the outdoors by walking. Me and my son do this together as a fun activity. However many people misuse the app (it is rather addicitive after all); they have been spotted using it while driving.

Pokémon Go attracted 6.1 million users in the UK. Along the way you catch Pokémon, which appear randomly; to catch these Pokémon you need pokeballs which you gain from poke stops.  Although it is a well-thought-out game there are many extremely dangerous scenarios which drivers may come across while playing this game while driving. 

The main reason in which this app could become a danger is while you are catching a Pokémon. For example, you have to throw a poke ball at the Pokémon, which may be moving around the screen which takes concentration to aim and successfully hit the target. This takes your attention off the road creating a dangerous scenario where you could lose control of the car and swerve into oncoming traffic or mount the kerb putting pedestrians at risk. You might also miss a pedestrian walking out into the road. All of these consequences may result in a possible serious accident.


Please be careful while playing Pokémon Go and be aware of your surroundings at all times. If you are in a car please make sure that you are not the driver and remember people’s lives are at risk.
The game is designed to get you out and walking around to catch the Pokémon, so that you are getting exercise at the same time.  So please stay safe and have fun –  play the game on foot and not in the car.

Whether you’re looking for a driving instructor in Mansfield or Sutton in Ashfield area or just looking to have fun, please use some road sense and stay safe.
