Googles lobbyists are trying to stop states from limiting how drivers can use its Glass headsets. According to Reuters, the company is speaking to legislators in Illinois, Delaware, and Missouri in an attempt to derail distracted driving bills that would include wearable computing devices like Glass. Last year, Arizona state senator Steve Farley called Glass a clear and present danger and urged Google itself to build in safeguards. No legislators in any of these states, have reported being contacted by Google, though New Jersey and Wyoming apparently did not respond to comment. Delawares Rep. Joseph Miro, however, says lobbyists forwarded him an article about a recent distracted driving case in California, attempting to show him that courts werent likely to prosecute Google Glass use.
