A woman wearing Google Glass was pulled over and ticketed by police. On Oct. 31 it was reported that the woman was cited for violating the California code that "prohibits the driver's use of monitors: Visually displaying a television broadcast or video signal that produces entertainment or business applications."
The driver has created a post on Google+ to try and figure out whether or not what she did was really against the law. Since Google Glass could have been used (in this instance) to "display assistance and safety enhancing information" which is legal in California, the ticket may have been unwarranted.
So far, the Google Glass consensus in this case is that the woman was wrongly ticketed and that she should fight the ticket in court. It's unknown what the woman was actually using Google Glass for while she was driving. Do you think this woman should have received a ticket?
