People already kill themselves by using a cell phone in places they shouldn't (driving, walking, etc), how much worse is it going to be when they are wearing them?

How many people you know that have died because they were using their cell-phone? Leave out driving, that is banned. Sounds like a bunch of grandma's round here... Time for the plastic bubbles.

In fairness, just because it's banned doesn't mean people aren't killing themselves - and more importantly killing others - by using their phone while driving.

There's potential for some useful stuff with Glass and driving - the obvious one being a HUD, so your speed and revs are displayed on your glasses via an app which talks to your car. Someone (Nissan, I think) has a smartphone app that you can use to control the aircon and suchlike in your car so this is not a big leap at all. Being able to see this without taking your eyes off the road could save lives.
