Yes, apparently people still play Pokemon Go.

And for one motorist in Burnaby, the struggle to separate the fantasy of the game with the reality of driving down the street meant a $368 ticket for distracted driving.

Yup, searching for Pokemon Go while driving.

The driver was hit with a fine and Burnaby RCMP tweeted about the incident:

So if you were thinking about re-hashing this tired trend from June 2016, it might be a good idea to wait until you’re far away from the prying public eye – or police road checks.

Just sayin’.
