SAN DIEGO -- A Temecula woman pleaded not guilty Tuesday in traffic court to charges of speeding and distracted-driving for wearing Google Glass.
Cecilia Abadie, 44, is believed to be the first driver in the nation to have received a ticket for wearing Google's computer-in-eyewear. Google Glass is not yet on the market, but Abadie is an "explorer" chosen to try out the innovative product.
She was stopped by a California Highway Patrol officer Oct. 29 while driving north on Interstate 15 in northern San Diego County.
The officer issued the ticket as a violation of Vehicle Code 27602 that makes it a violation to drive a vehicle "if a television receiver, a video monitor, or a television or video screen" is visible.
