Sign the Petition to

California Governor, Jerry Brown

Please pass a law that bans drivers from wearing Google Glass with operating a vehicle.

California has led the way in introducing and passing legislation that has led to countless lives saved on roadways across the country. By passing laws banning cell phones and texting while driving you have allowed other states to follow suit and pass similar legislation making this country's roads safer for everyone.

Now we need you to lead again.

According to the CDC, in 2011, 3,331 people were killed in crashes involving a distracted driver, compared to 3,267 in 2010. An additional, 387,000 people were injured in motor vehicle crashes involving a distracted driver in 2011, compared to 416,000 people injured in 2010. In 2010, nearly one in five crashes (18%) in which someone was injured involved distracted driving.

We are asking you to support a new law that will ban the use of Google Glass while driving. Studies have shown that the distractions of using technology similar to Glass impairs a driver much like a few alcoholic drinks do. It's just not safe. Passing legislation before it's too late is critical in keeping our roads safe.

Please join me in supporting responsible driving and banning Google Glass while driving.

Signed,

Nick Magel

How this will help

Many of us have read about the new Google Glass, I've even seen them on the streets of San Francisco (not to mention on a women who almost walked in to me while I was on a hike the other week)....

Many of us have read about the new Google Glass, I've even seen them on the streets of San Francisco (not to mention on a women who almost walked in to me while I was on a hike the other week). The small computer you where on your head that resembles glasses will soon be taking the country by storm, but wearing this computer on your head while driving a car is downright dangerous.

According to the CDC, in 2011, 3,331 people were killed in crashes involving a distracted driver, compared to 3,267 in 2010. An additional, 387,000 people were injured in motor vehicle crashes involving a distracted driver in 2011, compared to 416,000 people injured in 2010. In 2010, nearly one in five crashes (18%) in which someone was injured involved distracted driving.

We're asking leaders of the states and cities that led the charge on banning texting and cell phone use while driving to step up for driver safety once again. Lets ban the use of Google Glass before one life is lost from distracted driving. 

Keep your eyes on the road and off your email; it can wait.
