About PokémonGO (Pokemon GO) alert

Delivery of game "PokémonGO" for smartphones was started on July 22 in Japan.
It is game of premise that this game is idle outdoors, and accident and trouble considered to have had when we are playing this game in the outdoors occur at home and abroad.
That walk while looking at screen, and not only oneself encounters damage of accident and trouble, but also act (is called "nagara smartphone" as follows.) getting on car, bicycle hurts people of the circumference, and disturb traffic, and do, and have body; may trouble. In addition, we may invade no-go zones because we are absorbed in game before we know. When we play this game, let's consider manner around defense.
