There’s driving and texting, and then there’s driving and playing Pokémon Go on eight different phones at once. Washington State Trooper Rick Johnson shared a photo from the incident on Twitter Tuesday (August 13th.) It shows all eight devices in a make-shift holder made of foam, all with their screens lit up. The trooper noted that the driver “agreed to put phones in back seat and continued his commute with 8 less distractions.” The driver got off with a warning.
