Pokésafety is at the top of everyone’s priorities right now, and the NYPD has just posted a series of safety reminders aimed at preventing Pokémon Go accidents, kidnappings, and possible deaths, and just generally encouraging a return to common sense.
All fairly basic tips: watch where you walk, avoid dangerous places, don’t drive or bike while using the app. Don’t talk to strangers, or follow them to rare Pokémon.
By the way, these tips aren’t just for kids. The rest of us should know to keep our heads up too—even if we have the same childlike excitement.
