US woman denies distracted driving was due to Google Glass
LOS ANGELES(AFP) - A US woman thought to be the first person to get a traffic ticket for wearing Google Glass pleaded not guilty in court Tuesday, her lawyer said.
Ms Cecilia Abadie, who was wearing the hi-tech eye-wear but says it was not turned on at the time, was charged with speeding and distracted driving on a San Diego area freeway on October 29.
On Tuesday, her lawyer William Concidine appeared in court with the 44-year-old to deny the charges.
"Our primary argument is that Ms Abadie was not driving while the Google Glass was actually operational," he told AFP, adding: "There is nothing illegal about simply wearing the Google Glass while it is not turned on."
