Footage has surfaced of a bus driver in Japan appearing to play Pokemon GO while he is driving. The clip is rather unsettling.

Sanyo News reports that this is a tour bus driver from the Ryobi Group in Osaka. The company has banned drivers from having mobile phones while they’re behind the wheel and apologised for the incident.
This comes after deadly accidents have been blamed on Pokemon GO drivers in Japan and abroad. Just last week, a 36 year-old trucker was arrested in Aichi Prefecture, Japan for allegedly hitting and killing a nine-year-old boy. The suspect is quoted as saying he was playing Pokemon GO, wasn’t looking at the road and “didn’t see what was in front of him”.
