Many cities are implementing a no driving and talking on a cell phone policy, but now it seems that the new high-tech Google Glass might have to be added to that list of banned items while driving.
According to Fox News, California resident Cecilia Abadie said she was ticketed for driving while wearing the high-tech glasses.
Abadie described herself as a “tech nerd” and detailed the incident on her Google+ page. She said that a cop ticketed her for wearing her Google Glass while driving.
The Google+ post from Abadie reads, “A cop just stopped me and gave me a ticket for wearing Google Glass while driving! The exact line says: Driving with Monitor visble to Driver (Google Glass). Is #GoogleGlass ilegal [sic] while driving or is this cop wrong???"
The cop pulled over Abadie because the glasses are considered to be a violation of the California law prohibiting drivers from operating a vehicle with a television broadcast or video signal in view, The Huffington Post reported.
No details yet on what Abadie will do legally regarding the ticket. You can see her post below.
