Geocaching took quit a bit of time before it reached that level.
I guess it wont take long before we hear about fatalities caused by Pokemon GO just like we do with geocaching. The players might be about the same kind of people for both games. I had some opportunity to witness a pair of players. The situational awareness is significantly lower with Pokemon GO as there is apparently no location that can be compromised.
I will defintely be more alert when driving my vehicles.

Last I heard, a pair of poke-heads walked themselves off of a 90ft cliff in Encinitas (near San Diego, CA). But, I think they survived. If it's the area I'm thinking of, it's not a straight drop, but more of a Pachinko machine ride to the bottom.

As far as geocachers goes, they're not as bad. But, they still tend to make some monumentally bad choices (like putting a cache in the middle of the shooting range).

I've in two days had a man crash into me on a busy city street while playing PG, and had another person swerve her car into my lane (causing me to make an emergency lane change maneuver), also while playing PG. The driver flipped me off with one hand while holding her phone with the other.

Pokémon GO officially arrived in Canada on Sunday and the craze is just beginning. I thought it was bad before seeing people reading texts, etc while walking but this is even worse because people are driving and GOing at the same time. Its as if mass hysteria has taken a hold of society. If Darwinism holds true to life we will lose more than a few people off this earth, I just these gamers don't take me with them.
