California woman fights traffic ticket case for wearing Google Glass
Johannesburg – A woman in the US has pleaded not guilty for driving with Google Glass.
The device, not yet widely available to the public, features a thumbnail-size transparent display above the right eye.
According to news24, a California High Patrol officer pulled over Cecilia Abadie on suspicion of speeding in October.
The officer saw she had Google Glass and tacked on a citation usually given to drivers who may be distracted by a video screen.
On Tuesday, Abadie pleaded not guilty to both charges in San Diego traffic court.
Her lawyer said she would testify at a trial scheduled for January that the glasses were not on when Abadie was driving, but activated when she looked up at the officer, the report added.
