2. The use of mobile phones actually deprives users of their attention to the real life. This technology makes users engage in seemingly unnecessary activities.
3. Users often have trouble in booking a car and identifying the car.
4. Users tend to feel tired in the process of constantly searching for information in a strange environment. The time they spend on the car is cut off from the journey itself.
