Many people think that mobile phones should be banned in public places such as libraries, shops and public transport.
Do you agree or disagree?
In an era that demands constant connectivity, many places around the world practically need handheld devices to connect love ones and to complete technology-centered tasks. Mobile phone certainly fit the bill when it comes to society’s demand for media technologies. However, some individuals argue that cellphone is potentially be sourced of distraction in public places. I disagree with this policy of banning mobile phones in communal confined areas.
As cell phones has become more accessible for many people, it becomes increasingly essential tools in enhancing safety and communication. This handheld device is being use in so many ways such as entertainment, two-way communication, internet searching and many more. The benefits that people get from mobile phones are endless. A great example for this is internet searching access, with a wide variety of apps available for download this gadget offers a convenient life for people who have access to this technology. For stock market traders, stock trading apps allow them to trade from anywhere and they keep receiving real-time data alert about the real condition of the stock market from their cell phone. Additionally, this can be used for finding restaurant, booking a cab or even looking for nearest hospital during emergencies. Without it there would be a lot of troubles with people completely incapable of finding places.
On the other hand, it is understandable how disrespectful it can be for someone to answer calls in libraries, trains, or even in theatres. Sometimes, someone will wonder why there are individuals that are incapable of behaving properly in public venues. In trains for example, while other passengers are trying to relax or concentrate during the trip and suddenly a phone rung. Despite this, there are instances that using smartphones in public transports and other public areas is beneficial than a distraction. In particular, people can easily access if they want to reach their love ones at any time such as when there is bombing or a dangerous weather event outside. In addition, people use mobile phone for entertainment such as playing games or reading e-books. Enforcing a ban would be greatly undermined the advantages of owning this smart communication tool. Similarly, it can lead to a set of communication hassles or might introduce more problems not just for individual but for general public at large.
In conclusion, banning of mobile phone in public areas seem sensible, while it may be disruptive and irritating at times, however, this piece of technology will address the safety issues and protect a variety of risks in people’s everyday lives. Policy makers should allow the use of mobile phones in public places but with few restrictions.
