The VPD has issues a statement about Pokemon Go. That’s right, the game that hasn’t been released in Canada, but is already so popular that the VPD has had to release a safety guide for players.
It’s a well written and funny release, but also has some good safety tips for players. Well done VPD, well done.
- Look up – be aware of your surroundings. Are you about to step into traffic? Are you going to crash into someone or something? You could end more than just your game.
- It is very easy for any stranger to know your gathering spots. Make sure you go with a group, and that younger kids tell parents or another adult where they’re going.
- Say no to distracted game playing – don’t play while riding your bike, skateboard, scooter, or while driving.
- Vancouver has lots of public space. Don’t go on or in private property.
