article imageWoman receives ticket for driving with Google Glass

On Tuesday Google Glass pioneer Cecilia Abade was pulled over by a police officer in California, and issued a ticket for driving her vehicle while wearing Google Glass.
According to Phandroid, Google Glass is already banned in certain types of private establishments, such as some bars and nightclubs.
According to Fox, Abade said that the cop just stopped her and ticketed her, and on Google+ she asked if driving while wearing Google Glass was illegal or if the cop was wrong. She went onto say that any legal advice would be appreciated.
According to section 27602 of the California regulations, a person cannot drive a vehicle if a television or video screen, video monitor or television receiver is visible to the driver while behind the wheel of the vehicle.
According to Huffington post, the original reason for why Abade was pulled over was for speeding, and the officer also included distracted driving (wearing Google Glass) on the ticket.
The law does not apply to certain equipment though, and this includes GPS devices or vehicle displays.
The court will eventually decide whether or not Abade was rightfully ticketed for wearing Google Glass while driving.
