Wyoming lawmaker wants to ban Google Glass when behind the wheel | Ars Technica

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?

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
