Woman receives ticket for driving with Google Glass

Posted: Updated:

Those with three eyes had better think twice before setting one foot in a car.

California resident Cecilia Abadie, a self-described “geek and Google Glass pioneer,” said she was ticketed for driving while wearing the high-tech specs.

“A cop just stopped me and gave me a ticket for wearing Google Glass while driving!” wrote Abadie on Google Plus. “The exact line says: Driving with Monitor visible to Driver (Google Glass). Is #GoogleGlass illegal while driving or is this cop wrong? Any legal advice is appreciated!”

The regulation cited section 27602 of the California regulations, which state that “a person shall not drive a motor vehicle if a television receiver, a video monitor, or a television or video screen … is visible to the driver while driving the motor vehicle.”

The display on Google Glass is off unless actively being used, and the display is designed to sit out of the line of sight. But the infraction could help clarify what promises to  be a thorny legal area, as other companies seeks to create internet connected eyewear and more.

The ticket itself is likely to stand: Abadie was also cited for speeding.

    It has been a rough few days for a grand ole osprey trying to build a nest for the eggs it needs to lay. The trouble is where the bird wants to nest: in front of a traffic camera on a highway gantry perched above the eastbound lanes of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.

    COLCHESTER, Vt. (AP) -- A bunch of kids in a minivan are solving twin challenges in northern Vermont: refugees struggling to find the food of their homelands and farmers looking to offload unwanted livestock. The half dozen kids - that is, baby goats - that arrived last week at Pine Island Farm were the latest additions to the Vermont Goat Collaborative, a project that brings together new Americans hungry for goat meat with dairy goat farmers who have no need for young male animals.
