You know how you're not supposed to use your mobile phone while driving? That still applies to Pokemon GO too, but two drivers were a little too hooked to remember that.
NSW Police tweeted this afternoon that two drivers were caught within an hour playing Pokemon GO on the road. Their efforts resulted in the pair copping a fine of $325 and 4 demerit points on their license each.

The response on social media varied from light-hearted to a little excessive:

@nswpolice that's a funny looking Pokemon they found under their car

@nswpolice better use those money to pay Pokemon points and safe driving. Why not let your passenger play for you though?
