A woman was pulled for a routine Speeding Ticket and when the Trooper arrived at her window he saw that she was wearing Google Glass. Google Glass is a head mounted computer, which allows user to utilize voice commands to search Maps and various other things through the internet while still being able to view the world around you. The Trooper gave the woman a Speeding Ticket as well as a Traffic Citation for Driving with Google Glass. The case ended up being thrown out due to the fact that the State could not prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the Driver had the Google Glass ON while she was driving.
Right now, it is iffy as to whether it’s illegal in most states to wear Google Glass while driving. Google has informed users that Driving with Google Glass On MAY result in a Traffic Citation. Three States have already banned Google Glass While Driving: Delaware, West Virginia and New Jersey.
