Boston Looks To Copy NYC With Mobile Phone Ban

from the legislating-good-behavior dept

Possibly upset at the idea that folks in NYC might be considered more polite than folks in Boston, the city Council there is looking to copy NYC’s cell phone ban wherever a performance is happening with their own, almost identical, ban. It doesn’t say, though, if this ban will include even listening to your mobile phone in a public place like NYC’s does. I still think it’s an odd way to legislate good etiquette.
