Calif. Woman Cited for Driving While Wearing Google Glass

October 31, 2013  | 

A Temecula woman received a ticket from a California Highway Patrol officer Tuesday evening in San Diego for operating a vehicle while wearing Google Glass computerized glasses that connect people to the Internet, the San Diego Union Tribune reports.

Cecelia Abadie, who became a Google Glass test participant about five months ago, posted a copy of the ticket on her Google+ social networking page.

Abadie was pulled over for speeding while driving north on I-15 in San Diego. The CHP officer added the Google Glass violation after the stop. While many motorists have been cited for using cellphones while driving, this is believed to be the first time that a driver has received a ticket for wearing Google Glass.
