A Wyoming state senator has become the latest legislator to introduce a bill that would effectively ban Google Glass while driving.
The bill (PDF), which will be voted on when the state’s legislature reconvenes next month, simply states:
No person shall operate a motor vehicle on a public street or highway while using a wearable computer with head mounted display, or while using a handheld electronic wireless communication device to write, send, or read a text-based communication.
“Common sense would tell you that you really don’t need to look at a little computer while driving, that it endangers you, your passengers, and other drivers,” Sen. Floyd Esquibel (D) told Reuters on Wednesday.
Figures that this Luddite hick control freak would be a Democrat, doesn’t it?
