Several reports had been lurking in the internet talking about major accidents happened because of Pokémon. Now, I don’t want to be rude but these issues have got to stop!
When you type in Facebook the keywords #dontpokemongoanddrive, you’ll find people sharing reports about major accidents caused by the app. You’ll see there a man causing major traffic after stopping in the middle of the highway to catch a Pikach (huh?!).
There’s also a report in there about a man suing the developer of the app because he got hit by a car while using the Pokemon Go app. He claims that he was walking home when he felt a vibration from his phone upon checking it the notification was from the Pokemon Go app.
But the worst accident of all the reports was stabbed and mugged for his iPhone after allegedly playing Pokémon Go while walking in a bad neighbourhood.
Now I don’t know if these reports are legit but the fact is, the titles should not say that the accidents were caused by Pokémon Go. The app is not to blame with all these misfortunes happened to the alleged victims. Instead, they should be the one to be blame in the first place for misusing the app.
