A California woman who got pulled over last October while wearing an early version of Google Glass has been given a reprieve by a San Diego court commissioner. In a decision today, the citation against Cecilia Abadie was dismissed based on the fact that it could not be proven the device was on, reports Reuters. Abadie had originally been pulled over for speeding (a charge that was also dropped), though the officer added “distracted driving” to the ticket after seeing the device. The incident was under particularly close scrutiny as Glass develops from its testing phase to a commercial product. Legislation introduced in three states have already aimed to make the product illegal to use while driving, something that could severely hinder Google’s plan to have users keep it on at all times.
