You Could Get a Ticket For Wearing Google Glass While Driving

If you're excited at the prospect of wearing Google Glass while you do absolutely everything—from riding the subway to having sex—then you can at least strike driving off the list. Because, as Cecilia Abadie recently found out, you might end up getting a ticket.


Pulled over by San Diego police, she got a ticket for wearing the smart glasses while at the wheel just days ago. She explains:

A cop just stopped me and gave me a ticket for wearing Google Glass while driving! The exact line says: Driving with Monitor visible to Driver (Google Glass).

Clearly, Californian police feel that the display on Glass is as distracting as looking at a phone. It's not obvious if that's really the case or not—but it'll be interesting to see what lawyers and judges make of it. What do you think? [Google+ via Engadget]
