Imagine his shock when he found the driver, whose identity isn't revealed in the official documents, playing Pokemon Go on 8 separate cellphones. Playing #Pokemon Go with EIGHT (8) phones!
Earlier this week, Washington State troopers noticed that a vehicle was pulled over on the side of the road.

Regardless of whether you're reading emails, sending texts, talking with someone or checking Facebook, using your phone at the wheel is a distraction that can have fatal consequences, both for you and other motorists or pedestrians on the road at the same time as you.
