For anyone born in the glorious 90s, Pokémon is a household name. Many of us are in our late 20s and early 30s, and are super elated at the launch of the new Pokémon Go game. No matter how excited we are, it is fast becoming a danger on the road and people really need to be more aware of their surroundings while playing the game.

For anyone who doesn’t know what Pokémon Go is, it is an augmented reality game that allows users to wander around catching Pokémon. The game was designed so that people can WALK and catch these Pokémon all while allowing them to level up and play with other gamers. Sounds fun? Fun until you get yourself into an accident.

The lazy 90s kid have found an ingenious way to ‘catch em all’ by driving under 10 mph to catch the rare Pokémons as fast as possible. This ridiculously slow speed, coupled with distracted driving has caused many near-miss accidents.

Though CartelPress has falsely accused a man of causing a huge accident while using Pokémon Go while driving, it is without a doubt a very real possibility in the near future.
