The Vermont Democratic Senator in the United States introduced a bill requiring people under the age of 21 not to use smartphones. Allegedly, they have not yet “grown up”.
The senator believes that people under the age of 21 may not be mature enough to use their smartphone safely. As evidence of this thesis, the politician cited cases of road accidents and the prevalence of harassment on the Internet among adolescents. Smartphones are reported to be one of the leading causes of death among young people in the United States. Allegedly teenagers are more likely to engage in dangerous activity through phones, which can even end in suicide.
The bill proposes to fine citizens under the age of 21 who are caught using a smartphone. The fine is $ 1,000… In addition, prison may be used as a punishment.
