What Will I Learn?
#Don’t Play The Game On Cliff, Hills & Slopes
Pokemons can be anywhere. Cliff and hills may sounds like a good place to catch some wild pokemons but there are many chances for the players to fall down. In Encinitas, California (outside San Diego), there were two people, one after the other falls 90-foot drop while trying to catch the pokemon. They were found unconscious and later admitted in the hospital.
#Don’t Go To The Highway
Everyone knows that walking on the middle of the highway is dangerous and can be hit by one of the vehicles moving in high speed. But Pokemon players have gone nuts and got hit by the cars.

#Dont Break Into The Private Property
Pokemon go players are crazy enough to enter into private properties and capture their pokemons. Some had even entered into the police stations and got arrested. That’s really stupid.
