Distracted driving charges dismissed

16 Jan, 2014

Cecilia Abadie, the first person to be ticketed for wearing Glass while driving, is cleared of her citations. Commissioner John Blair rules that the officer could not know whether or not Glass was in use when Abadie was driving. However, he stresses that using Glass’s display while driving could fall under distracted driving laws. Google does not make a statement about the case but its website advises that Glass users not use the device while driving:

Read up and follow the law! Above all, even when you’re following the law, don’t hurt yourself or others by failing to pay attention to the road. The same goes for bicycling: whether or not any laws limit your use of Glass, always be careful.
