Mobile Phone Use In Park Under Spotlight

Are mobile phones ruining the great outdoors? A group in the UK is begging people to stop using their mobile phones while in a park there, saying that the place is designed for people seeking peace and tranquility, and they’re sick of being disturbed by ringing phones and chatty people. This argument seems to get repeated quite often. In the end, it’s a question of etiquette. I think that, as people get more used to using mobile phones, they’ll hopefully learn when it is (and is not) appropriate to be using them.
