Google Glass – officially safe to wear whilst driving! As long as it’s not activated!

A woman stopped by police for driving while wearing Google Glass has been cleared of wrongdoing by a court in California.

Cecilia Abadie, was stopped on a San Diego freeway in October and when the California Highway Patrol officer saw she was wearing Google Glass they gave her a citation usually given to people driving while a video or TV screen is on in the front of their vehicle.

But the San Diego traffic court threw out the citation, with commissioner John Blair ruling she was not guilty because the offence for which was ticketed requires proof that the device was in use and he had found there was no proof beyond a reasonable doubt.

E&T News has been covering this Google Glass driving story since it first broke and this, along with all our other Google news stories, are gathered together on one convenient Google Watch page, for your delectation.
