It is often argued that the use of cell phone should be prohibited as somking in specific areas. Personally, I completely disagree with this view in following reasons.
The main reason for my view is that using mobile phone has no harm on others, whereas smoking in public could lead to health problems. Although some people may argue that texting when crossing streets is dangerous, banning mobile phone due to traffic accidents seems to make a mountain out of a molehill since there are other things can distract people and people may use mobile phone anywhere. Hence, instead of prohibiting the use of cell phone, it is more practical to make sure people use it properly.
Another reason for my view is that mobile phone is a communicate tool and is crucial when there is an emergency event, but we can never know where accidents will happen. For instance, people may accidentially fall down stairs in the entrance of metro stations or in the department stores, without cell phone people cannot call for an ambluance instantly, but those places might be consider to become a no cell phone area when it comes to prohibition. Therefore, proibiting the use of cell phone in certain places is more likely to be a hindrance than a help.
In conclusion, I believe using mobile phone would not have negative effects to others but can be a help to emergency incidents. Therefore, governments should assure that people using their cell phones freely instead of limiting the use of it in certain areas.
