uk-govt-glass-banWhile I am quite sure that many of you out there do want to own a pair of Google Glass for yourself, do take note that this is not a device which will be able to be worn just about anywhere and everywhere you go. So far, we do know that it will not be allowed at the Caesar’s Palace casinos for obvious reasons, not to mention a Seattle dive bar dropping the banhammer on Google Glass earlier this year, too. In fact, a new West Virginia bill could result in the banning of Google Glass while driving, and that is certainly something which will resonate with the UK government.

According to a Department for Transport spokesperson as reported by Stuff, “We are aware of the impending rollout of Google Glass and are in discussion with the Police to ensure that individuals do not use this technology while driving. It is important that drivers give their full attention to the road when they are behind the wheel and do not behave in a way that stops them from observing what is happening on the road.”

It makes sense to us though, as you should pay utmost attention to the road while driving, and something like Google Glass could be an unwanted distraction.
