Many technology buffs are excited about one of the newest high-tech wireless devices, Google Glass. Google Glass, which looks like a simple pair of glasses, allows users to cruise the Internet, check e-mail, take photos, and listen to music just by blinking. While this is an incredible advance in technology, some individuals find it worrisome that users are able to do this all while doing other tasks as well, such as driving. Which raises the question, how will using these glasses affect your Danielson Auto Insurance rates?

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 9 people are killed and more than 1,060 people are injured in crashes due to a distracted driver. It’s statistics such as this that worry law enforcement officials and highway safety organizations. In fact in some states, lawmakers are considering restrictions on the Google Glass devices all together, over concern that they’re hazardous to the motoring public, which has proved to be easily distracted by cell phones.

Delaware State Rep Joe Miro sponsored the Delaware bill, which will be introduced on May 30, 2014 and will add “wearable computer with a head-mounted display” to the list of electronic devices that motorists may not legally operate while driving. Miro says that just like a cellphone, Google Glass is not something that should be used while driving, even though the device is “hands-free” as the current law requires.

Google has contacted officials in Delaware as well as Illinois and Missouri to stop proposed restrictions on driving with headsets such as Google Glass. So far, no states have actually passed Google Glass restrictions, however legislators and the public are concerned. In addition to raising questions about safety, many are wondering how this will affect Danielson Auto Insurance rates. There is currently no bill in the queue to restrict these glasses in Connecticut.
