It was in October last year when a certain Cecilia Abadie from California was pulled over and ticketed by the authorities for wearing Google Glass while driving. Having said that, she pled not guilty to this particular charge, and she has been scheduled to appear in a Southern California traffic court. This is certainly an interesting case to look forward to, as it also raises up new questions when it comes to distracted driving. I guess technology entrepreneur Cecilia Abadie happened to be one of the persons to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Abadie did post this particular news concerning her ticket on social media, “A cop just stopped me and gave me a ticket for wearing Google Glass while driving!” She has also made it to the news by virtue of being the first person who was cited for wearing Google Glass while driving. While Google Glass has yet to be made available to the masses, it has already undergone testing by thousands of so-called “Explorers” who were privileged enough to receive early access to such technology. Do you think that lawmakers should start to look into different ways where technology has “invaded” our lives, and to amend the laws accordingly so that common sense will prevail?
