Why is there no longer a single day that goes past without some wowser or whinger calling for the ban of some thing or other.
The last target for the wowsers are smart watches.
Road safety campaigners are calling for a ban on the use of wearable technology, including smartwatches, by drivers.
Smartwatches from high-tech giants Samsung, Sony, Motorola and LG – which can be used for calls, texts and calendar notifications – are for sale in New Zealand. Apple is releasing its Apple Watch here later this year.

Caroline Perry, of road safety charity Brake, said the law should be widened, stating motorists using smart technology on their watches while driving should face the same sanctions.

Police confirmed that they stopped the man in the busy tourist area on Saturday, but did not arrest him as his actions were deemed ‘within the law’.
The decision has been slammed on social media, with many saying it makes they feel unsafe on the streets of Britain.
Gavin tweeted: ‘Why are we allowing this to happen on our streets a man walking past big ben with an ISIS flag.
‘Walk through London past Big Ben with an ISIS flag nothing done do it with swastika what would be done?’
