Not guilty plea in Google Glass case

Written by Nick Farrell



Are they a distraction?

A California woman who became the first ever ticketed for driving while wearing Google Glass in October pleaded not guilty. Cecilia Abadie was pulled over for allegedly doing 80mph in a 65mph zone October 29 and was fined before promptly uploading a photo of the ticket to Google Plus.

The software developer was charged additionally for wearing the head-mounted computer while driving. In addition to speeding, her violation was ‘driving w/monitor visible to driver (Google Glass)’. Abadie pleaded not guilty to both charges.

Her attorney William Concidine said she will testify at a trial scheduled for January that the glasses were not on when she was driving, and activated when she looked up at the officer as he stood by her window. The device is designed to respond to a head tilt by waking itself up.

Concidine also said the vehicle code listed in the citation applies to video screens in vehicles and is not relevant to mobile technology such as Google Glass.
