NYC: Shut Off Your Cell Phone Or Else
from the its-the-law dept
Back in October we mentioned that New York City was looking into banning cell phones at performance venues. The City Council thought it was such a good idea they have gone ahead and approved the bill. Under the new bill it will be illegal to talk on the phone, listen to one and or allow one to ring at performances from the opera to movies. However there is no mention of how the ban will be enforced and who will issue the violations. That will lead to selective enforcement which is just going to lead to its own set of problems and isn't really going to stop dumb people.
