Cecilia Adabie Gets Ticket For Wearing Google Glass

Posted Oct 30, 2013

Cecilia Adabie is a Google Glass Explorer that lives in California and was the first person to get a ticket while wearing the Google Glass while driving.  Abadie was driving around San Diego when she got pulled over for speeding.  The primary infraction was for driving 15MPH over the speed limit and the secondary offense said ?driving w/ monitor visible to driver (Google Glass).?

The officer referred to a citation for violating California?s Vehicle Code Section 27602.  That section says ?A person shall not drive a motor vehicle if a television receiver, a video monitor, or a television or video screen, or any other similar means of visually displaying a television broadcast or video signal that produces entertainment or business applications, is operating and is located in the motor vehicle at a point forward of the back of the driver?s seat, or is operating and the monitor, screen, or display is visible to the driver while driving the motor vehicle.?

Abadie said on Google+ that Google Glass was not functioning while she was driving.  However, the officer said “it was blocking my view.”
