U.K. Will Ban Driving While Wearing Google Glass

Probably so you don't look like a dork behind the wheel


The U.K.'s Department for Transport has announced that it is not in favor of tolerating drivers who wear Google's new glasses.

A Department of Transport spokesman was quoted by the Telegraph as saying: "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."

He added in quotes that were actually given to StuffTV: "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."
