[usatoday.com...]

The California Highway Patrol confirmed to The Los Angeles Times that the citation was issued for violating California Vehicle Code 27602:

A person shall not drive a motor vehicle if a television receiver, a video monitor, or a television or video screen, or any other similar means of visually displaying a television broadcast or video signal that produces entertainment or business applications, is operating and is located in the motor vehicle at a point forward of the back of the driver's seat, or is operating and the monitor, screen, or display is visible to the driver while driving the motor vehicle.

Ouch!

As I understand it, the device was off, but the cop had no way of knowing that.

too bad we can't see the googleglasses video of the driver being ticketed for using googleglasses.


new feature request: upon detection of warning lights in the rear view mirror, flash a warning to the wearer to TAKE OFF GLASSES.


more likely, G programs the things to not work within two feet of a steering wheel (within CA). :)

Google have a solution to this; drivers just have to wait for the self-driving Google car.

Yeah, but this is California. Most likely, you could STILL be cited for wearing Google Glass (as the law would still be on the books).

Now, if/when Google Glass comes with an option to make them invisible on demand...

But the law refers repeatedly to "driving" or "operating" a motor vehicle. If it's a self-driving car, you're just a passenger :)

Now, if the CHP has developed such keen vision-- a detail which frankly surprises me-- maybe they could teach our local police department what a cell phone looks like.

If you switched on the self drive function that makes you the "operator".

I have to wonder if a statement along the lines of "hello Mr. Officer, just want to let you know that I am broadcasting this traffic stop live on the interwebs via my google glass..." was made during the stop.

thats pretty much it....yet this person seems to be totally shocked and is taking to the internet in some kinda stupid protest.

its like driving around in a state where radar detectors are illegal, with an unplugged one hanging in your window.

don't be shocked when you are pulled over and ticketed.
