POLL: Cell Phone Usage Banned in NYC Performances - What Should Be Done?

Sister Act at the Broadway Theatre

Back in 2003, the New York City Council voted to ban the usage of cell phones in all movie theaters, Broadway theaters, concert halls and venues for live performance.

The law, which theater owners proposed, was vetoed by Mayor Michael Bloomberg, but his veto was overturned. Bloomberg felt the law was "unenforceable," reports Reuters. "The law carries a fine of $50 for offenders who are caught and cited."

The ban came after several patron complaints about cell phones and recent news coverage of cell phones going off in the middle of concerts.

But, the problem continues and the law remains unenforced. What do YOU think should be done?
