This Pokemon Go Player Drove Into a Cop Car, Watch the Video Here

"That's what I get for playing this dumb-a** game," driver says.


Playing Pokemon Go while driving is and always will be a bad idea. In case you need video evidence of that, the Baltimore Police Department has you covered.

The police force posted a video today that shows a young man who drove into a parked police car apparently as a result of being distracted by Pokemon Go. "That's what I get for playing this dumb-a** game," the driver says as he gets out of the vehicle, referring to Pokemon Go (via Kotaku).

The good news is no one was hurt. As Kotaku mentions, it could have been a lot worse.

Earlier this month, a driver crashed into a tree after reportedly admitting to playing Pokemon Go behind the wheel. The wreck looked horrible, but the driver was not seriously injured.

Maybe one day Pokemon Go developer Niantic Labs will find a way to discourage people from playing while driving.

Until then, use your common sense. Playing a video game, or doing anything else that distracts you, is a bad idea while operating a motor vehicle.
