Expert Answer:

Heisenberg's uncertainty principle is not applicable in our daily life. It is only applicable on micro objects i.e. subatomic particles. Also, another reason is that in daily life the position and velocity can be measured with accuracy. 

The reason why the uncertainty principle is of no importance in our daily life is that Planck's constant 'h' is so small (6.625 x 10-34 joule-seconds) that the uncertainties in position and momentum are very small as compared to the size of the objects and the momentum of the objects respectively. Hence, this may be neglected.
