Google Glass Faces Driving Bans as States Move to Bar Use

Motorists in at least six states may be barred from using Google Glass, the eyewear device under test that can access the Internet and take photos with a blink.

Bills in West Virginia, Illinois and New Jersey would include Google Inc.’s glasses among hand-held mobile phones and other gadgets that are barred from use while driving. A measure in New York would make it illegal for motorists to wear Google Glass until the motor vehicle department recommends how a ban could be enforced.
