Furious Passenger Shares Photos Of Uber Driver Playing Pokemon Go WHILE Driving

A Uber passenger in London could scarcely believe his eyes when he saw his driver playing Pokemon Go, the uber popular game of the moment that seems to be involved in every facet of life now.
Paul Mohammad was travelling from Haringey to Bounds Green in north London on Wednesday when he realised that his driver actually had his phone in front of him, with the Pokemon Go app opened and in play mode.
Pokemon Go involves finding the little creatures at real world locations, and it seems that whilst driving through the traffic in London, the driver was keeping his eyes peeled to find some Pokemon’s.
The phone was fixed to a hands free station with the game running, and every once in a while, the driver touched the screen to attempt capturing some Pokemon’s.

“I was surprised to say the least. Obviously it’s very popular at the moment but I didn’t expect a driver to be playing it while he’s on the road.” Paul, 22, said, according to MailOnline.

“I was travelling to my girlfriend’s house, probably only 20 minutes away, but it was on the screen the whole time.

“He was actually collecting Pokémon on the road as he was driving. I don’t play it but I knew what he was doing.

“I didn’t mention it to him but I couldn’t believe it so I thought I would take a video to show my friends. You could even hear the background music coming from the phone. He was swiping the screen and definitely playing it.

“I was amazed that even an Uber driver was playing it. Because of the traffic, he wasn’t able to concentrate on it that much, but there were times when he was touching it to catch Pokémon.

“At first I thought it was a bit crazy but in the end I actually found it pretty funny. I’m quite relaxed about it.” he added. “I showed my friends and they were like: ‘What the f***, you need to call the police’.”

He apparently hasn’t, as Uber said they haven’t received a complaint about the situation, but are fully prepared to investigate if they do so.
