Cecilia Abadie was give a ticket by a traffic officer whilst driving in California for suspicion of exceeding the speed limit, and when the officer noticed she was wearing Google Glass, he gave here a citation for wearing the device.
This case could impact how people use Google Glass in their vehicles in the future, Cecilia Abadie was not actually using Google Glass whilst driving, instead she was wearing the device and it was turned off, the device then turned itself on when she stopped and tilted her head.
It will be interesting to see what happens in the case, which went to court yesterday, as there is no specific law in California at the moment, that covers the use of Google Glass whilst driving.
Other states in the US, which include New Jersey, West Virginia and Delaware are apparently working on laws which could ban the use of Google Glass whilst driving your vehicle in the future.
