The Arizona Department of Transportation has a very important message for drivers. Don't Pokemon and drive.

The message is simple, driving and searching for exotic monsters or checking in at PokéStops don't mix.

As ADOT tweeted, "Pikachu is too smart to be roadkill, anyway."

They remind drivers to #DontCatchAndDrive and when traveling on foot, don't play the game near the road.

The smartphone app that was released about a week ago is soaring in popularity with Pokémon trainers heading out to hunt for rare monsters.

The PokemonGo app already has than 7.5 million U.S. downloads since it was launched.
