Cecelia Abadie, the California woman cited by the State Patrol for distracted driving while wearing Google Glass has been cleared of all charges. Officers initially pulled Abadie over for speeding, but issued an additional ticket for distraction because she was wearing Google Glass. Abadie was cleared following the court’s determination that no one could know if the Google Glass was on or not at the time of the traffic stop.
While this may seem like an initial victory for proponents of driving while wearing Google Glass, the debate is far from over. Goggle Glass is still in its beta phase, but many states are already planning on restricting use of the device while driving once it is released.
Distraction is a factor in a majority of car accidents. No matter if distraction is caused by sending a text, changing a radio station, or operating Google Glass, the results can be disastrous. If you are injured by a distracted driver, you may be entitled to significant compensation.
