A recent story of a distracted driver who was given a citation by police did not involve texting. Instead, this may be one of the earliest incidents of driving while using Google Glass.
According to Fox News, Cecilia Abadie was pulled over for speeding Tuesday, and when the California Highway Patrol Officer saw that she was wearing Google Glass, he slapped on a citation for distracted driving.
Abadie plans on fighting the ticket because she feels that she was not distracted by the device.
"The Glass was on, but I wasn't actively using it" to conserve the battery, said Abadie. The device goes inactive if it is not asked to perform a task.
Google Glass eyeglasses are small and light-weight and users can take pictures, record video, share media, read email, and much more.
This wearable computer features a thumbnail-size transparent display screen located above the right eye.
Legislators in Delaware, New Jersey and West Virginia have introduced bills that would specifically ban driving with Google Glass.
