Pokemon No!

A Vancouver driver has been ticketed for playing Pokemon Go behind the wheel.

The driver was so engrossed in the mobile game, he pulled up beside two police officers while playing, earning himself a $368 fine.

“It’s not worth risking your life or the lives of others so that you can play while driving,” the VPD tweeted.

It's not the first incident of its kind.

Police issued a warning in July 2016, urging drivers to pay attention after issuing six tickets to distracted motorists playing the game.

two more tickets were issued in Burnaby a few months later, and two teens were briefly apprehended after crossing into Montana while wrapped up in the game.
