Young girls using personal mobility device to play Pokemon Go in Woodlands is an 'accident waiting to happen'

A Stomper saw two young girls using a personal mobility device to play Pokemon Go today (Aug 7).

In an email to Stomp, the Stomper said he was baffled after coming across the unusual sight especially since a recent police advisory has stated that the game should not be played when driving or using personal mobility device.

Said the Stomper with regard to what he saw:

"A young girl was operating a personal mobility device meant for seniors while another girl around her age was seated beside her.

"The were riding on a pavement going towards an intersection at Woodlands Avenue 2 and Avenue 5.

"This is an accident waiting to happen especially if the young girl gets distracted when operating the mobility device."
