What's The Point of Phone Booths?

A pointless phone booth on Shepherd's Bush Green
What's The Point of Phone Booths? Once upon time we needed them - because no-one had a mobile phone.

But now, since almost everyone has a phone, they are dinosaurs, their vandalised skeletons decaying in our busy streets.

Mostly nowadays they seem to be used as public urinals, or even a place to have a good vomit after a big night out.

Given that space in our crowded streets is at a premium - what's the point of phone booths? Can't we just get rid of them?
