Phone users oblivious to robbery danger

THE EDITOR, Sir:

It has become a safety concern that so many Jamaicans, mostly ladies and girls, walk around in public with their heads buried in their cell phones. However, when one is fully immersed in phone calls or scrolling and responding to messages on social media, awareness of one’s environment falls.

We are living in dangerous times, so, ladies, avoid becoming the victim of cell-phone distraction. Be alert, particularly when in public spaces. Maybe it’s opportune for mobile service providers FLOW and Digicel to mount campaigns urging safety when using cell phones in public.
