Google Glass

While the concept of smart glasses first came into the spotlight with Google Glass, the device did not quite manage to break into the mainstream. Both startups and giant tech companies have since intensified their efforts to place practical features into glasses. Smart glasses are deemed to be the next huge breakthrough in wearable technology that will filter into our lives. Similar to smartphones, smart glasses can connect to various applications, check email, take pictures, and post on social media. With Apple and Facebook confirming plans to launch smart glasses, the wearables are sure to be trendy and widely used. Nevertheless, smart glasses and other wearable devices have led safety officials to speculate how the advanced technology will impact our road safety.

The various functions of smart glasses make them extremely tempting to use while stuck in traffic or even driving. Augmented reality smart glasses have the technology to merge the real world with virtual data and further take a user’s attention off the road. Although smart glasses are hands-free devices, the optical display right in front of the wearer’s eyes can be extremely distracting. Similar to other distractions behind the wheel, such as texting or playing on a smartphone, wearing smart glasses can place others in grave danger. The mind is only really capable of focusing complete attention on one task at a time. Thus, wearers face a heightened risk of smart glasses disrupting their concentration. Although almost all drivers occasionally drive distracted, every motorist must pay attention to the road and avoid unnecessary accidents. Failing to focus completely on the road for any reason is considered negligent driving.

Why Is Driving With Smart Glasses So Dangerous? Glasses in Street

Although driving with smart glasses may not seem that unsafe, it can endanger the driver and occupants of the vehicle as well as all others on the road. Using smart glasses while driving is a form of distracted driving that considerably heightens the risk of crashing. It is never a good idea for drivers to give in to distractions. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, distracted driving took 3,142 lives in a single recent year alone. Just imagine for a moment what could go wrong when a motorist is driving through a school zone or down the highway while using smart glasses.

Distractions can result in deadly head-on accidents, T-bone crashes, lane departure accidents, and rear-end collisions. Even when wearers turned off the glasses while driving, the design alone can significantly reduce peripheral vision, which is necessary for safe driving. Limiting someone’s field of vision can create additional blind spots and lead to pointless accidents, especially when switching lanes or merging into traffic. Wearing smart glasses behind the wheel may lead to the following:

  1. Running stop signs and traffic lights;
  2. Drifting inside other traffic lanes;
  3. Reacting much slower;
  4. Stopping or slowing down unexpectedly;
  5. Failing to notice pedestrians and bicyclists;
  6. Swerving into oncoming vehicles;
  7. Colliding into cars in front; and
  8. Failing to yield to the right-of-way.



Liability For Car Accidents Caused By Smart Glasses

Many collisions could be prevented if motorists simply paid more attention and avoided unnecessary distractions. Staying accident-free requires quick reactions, and drivers wearing smart glasses may not react timely or suitably to sporadic events. Typically, victims of car accidents use the legal theory of negligence to hold the distracted drivers responsible. The Dietrich Law Firm P.C. will prove liability for your crash by showing the following:

  1. Duty of Care: All drivers are expected to operate their vehicles safely and keep their eyes on the road. Wearing smart glasses distracts drivers and places others in harm’s way.
  2. Breach of Duty: A driver can violate his or her legal obligations by not paying attention or wearing a device that hinders their vision.
  3. Causation: The other driver’s use of smart glasses was a factor in your accident. You can demonstrate this by showing that you would not have been injured if the defendant was not wearing the smart glasses.
  4. Actual Damages: You suffered genuine injuries or other damages due to the collision, such as medical bills, lost wages, or vehicle damage.

Victims of car accidents that were badly injured because of another’s use of smart glasses may be eligible to seek compensation for all of their medical costs, rehabilitation, lost wages, loss of enjoyment, pain and suffering, and all other unanticipated damages. Retaining the best possible car accident injury attorney is imperative to receiving larger settlement offers and jury verdicts.
