VIRAL: MMDA Reminds Pokemon Go Players To Be Responsible Pedestrians

The highly anticipated game Pokemon Go has been released in some areas of the world but unfortunately, it’s been blocked in the PH. The mobile game, which allows you to catch your own Pokemon via your smartphone, requires the user to walk around to find said Pokemons. Because of this and in anticipation of the game’s release in this territory, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) has a reminder to all pedestrians:

mmda- pokemon go

It reads:


1. Huwag maglaro ng Pokemon Go habang tumatawid. Ituon ang mata sa kalsada at huwag kalimutang lumingon sa kaliwa’t kanan. 

2. Kung di mapigilang maglaro, tumawid gamit ang designated pedestrian footbridges ngunit siguraduhing alisto sa paligid habang naglalakad.

Thank you po.

Bravo, MMDA. Props for being funny and socially relevant. You’re doing something right! 😛
