Penalties possible for drivers wearing Google Glass in US and UK [w/poll]
A UK Department for Transportation official told Stuff that it is "in discussion with the police to ensure that individuals do not use this technology while driving." Similarly, as Gizmodo reports, West Virginia House of Delegates member Gary G. Howell has said he thinks the technology would be just as problematic as texting while driving and is introducing a bill to ban Google Glass from being used on the roads in that state.
Glass has been tested while riding a motorcycle with mixed results, and there's even an application in development for Tesla Model S owners, but it could all be for naught if Big Brother says no. Do you think using Google Glass should be prohibited while driving? Sound off in the poll below.
