Wearing Google Glass While Driving Ticket Will Not Add Point to DMV Record

Wearing Google Glass While Driving Ticket Will Not Add Point to DMV Record blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

On October 29, 2013 a California Highway Patrol officer stopped a southern California driver and handed out the world’s first known ticket for driving with a monitor visible to the driver, specifically referring to the Google Glass.

The officer cited VC27602 as the applicable law. Being cited under this law is an infraction which carries a fine of about $240 but it will not add a point to a driver’s DMV record. This type of ticket can be contested through a court trial or written trial.

A likely excuse drivers will use to get out of a “Google Glass ticket” is they weren’t actually “in use” because the law specifies “is operating”. It also seems officers will encounter difficulty when trying to gain visual confirmation that the Google Glasses were “in use” because of the placement of the tiny screen over/above the user’s eye.  It is not like looking into a car and seeing the screen of a TV or video monitor lit up.

Since the law does not specifically reference a device like Google Glass some judges may interpret the law to include Google Glass while others may not, which means we may be seeing more of these tickets if more people start wearing Google Glass while driving. – blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.
