Would Google Glass cause distracted driving or help drivers?

Google Glass is a wearable computer that was briefly for sale. It essentially looked like a pair of glasses, but it would put information up on the screen in a type of Heads-Up Display (HUD). While Google is no longer making the initial version, the company is reportedly still working on the technology, so it's likely something similar will come back out in the future.

When these first computers were being sold, some experts said that they should not be used behind the wheel of a car. They would cause accidents, these people said, by distracting drivers who needed to focus on the road. This was thought of as very similar to texting and driving or using a smartphone while driving.

However, others have argued that the computer could actually make someone a better driver. Information could then be sent directly to the driver to tell him or her about traffic conditions, weather conditions and other things of that nature. The more information the driver had, the better he or she could drive.

After all, a HUD does not mean that a person has to look away from the road. In many ways, it is similar to all of the displays that litter the dashboard of any car. Drivers actually do have to look down to look at their speed, oil pressure and other data, so having information on the glasses may be a better alternative.

Those who have been injured by distracted drivers, no matter how they were distracted, must look into their legal rights to financial compensation for all of the injuries and losses that they suffered in Chicago.
