The driver of the auto, who was not identified, was playing the mobile game on eight different phones, according to Rick Johnson, the spokesman for the Washington State Patrol in King County, who tweeted about the incident. Playing #Pokemon Go with EIGHT (8) phones!
The trooper came across the driver Tuesday morning.
The sergeant, however, did advise the motorist not to stop along the highway shoulder unless there was an emergency.
"To make sure you and those around you are safe, do not play "Pokémon Go" while riding a bike, driving a vehicle, operating heavy machinery, or doing anything else that requires your full attention", the site says.
The driver on SR 518 had taken things to another level, however, with an organized display of smartphones.
But Smith asked the driver to put the phones in the back seat and move along, because stopping on the shoulder is for emergencies only.
We all know that you should have 100% of your concentration on the road and its surroundings when driving, and are all aware of the distractions of smartphones in the vehicle.
Trooper Johnson notes that this is not the first incident with Pokemon Go on the road.
