Back in October Cecilia Abadie started her battle against the state of California after she received a ticket for driving while wearing Google Glass. Well the fight was worth it as Abadie came out the victor in the situation.
The traffic citation was issued when a highway patrol officer said the Google Glass was a violation of driving with a video or TV in the car. Abadie felt she did no wrong by wearing the gadget and finally got to plea her case in court this Thursday. The San Diego court commissioner threw the case out because the officer was unable to present any proof that the device was in use while she was driving.
“There is no testimony it was operating or in use while Ms. Abadie was driving,” the commission stated during the hearing.
In addition to a lack of proof, an expert didn’t appear to testify that the device had been calibrated.
Let’s see if any new safety measures will implemented in Google Glass to ensure they can’t be used in the car.
