quote: The officer who issued the ticket for speeding and for wearing Google Glass noted that he initially wasn’t going to cite the driver for wearing the glasses, however, he noted, "She got a little argumentative about whether or not it was legal for her to wear them."
quote: She only got off on a technicality, and that's sad.
quote: Evidence is a required part of ALL criminal cases
quote: It would seem you indeed have the maturity AND intelligence of a fifth grader.
quote: You're taking me out of context. I was speaking through the eyes of the officer, perhaps I should have made that more clear.
quote: And you bring up MY intelligence? How was this a "criminal case"? It's a traffic violation, not even a major one!
quote: How many people do you think get tickets in this country every year, are actually innocent of the supposed violation, and end up paying the fine anyway? The system is slanted against us, and they know it, because they rigged it that way. Proving your innocence ends up costing you MORE than the ticket is, so most people don't even bother.
quote: Good thing maturity and intelligence can be faked. Your reading comprehension just plain sucks, good luck with that.
quote: The cop abused his authority here, and the ticket deserved to be thrown out. There is nothing more to discuss.
quote: Hell if I had my way, you could use Google Glass even while driving. Screw the nanny state.
quote: It is really sad when people react as you do and label a group based upon a small incident. It creates and sets up such ignorance that many others fall prey to and sometimes echo.
quote: Learn to understand what these cops have to do and put up with on a daily basis and you'll understand why many of them change, sometimes for the worst.
quote: Once in a while, a motorist fights back and wins, or runs an abusive cop over, or shoots one - and I smile from ear to ear every time it happens.
quote: using a “visual monitor” in her car while driving
quote: so because driving vehicles can never truly be safe we shouldn't have laws about it then? so drunk driving should be find, speeding should be fine, ignoring street lights should be perfectly ok... very smart idea.Just because you can crash in perfectly clear skies doesn't mean there shouldn't be laws protecting people from vehicle injuries. also all studies show that in clear skies, or bad weather, driving while distracted greatly increases your chances of a crash.
quote: another completely unintelligent comment
quote: now you go crash into a wall and end your miserable pathetic life.
quote: You are just proving my point further
quote: if people can be unsafe drivers when not distracted imagine how bad they can be when they are distracted
quote: Yes all of those things are also distractions
quote: but Glass is much more distracting as it requires you to take your vision and attention off of the road in order to use the visual navigation
quote: There are gray areas in the law because the law says your hands must always be on the wheel yet people let go in order to drink coffee or smoke a cig which I have never heard anyone getting ticket for, but I have heard of people putting on makeup and eating in the car and getting tickets.
quote: What are you rambling about!?!
quote: It's illegal in the state of California to have unlocked and loaded firearms within arms' reach while driving.
quote: and glass is the same thing if not worse because it is always in your field of vision and ready to use.
quote: I am not advocating the loss of all freedoms.
quote: Do you understand how a HUD works? Comparing Google Glass to texting is idiotic. Ever wonder why avionics systems use HUD's? Because you never have to take your eyes away from where you are going and what you are doing!
quote: Automotive HUDs give drivers information to aid their ability to DRIVE.
quote: I am sorry but when did prescription glasses and contact lenses become wearable technology? Why would we ban those they aren't distracting and they AID vision which is needed for driving.
quote: Let me see did crime rates go down from not being allowed to have loaded guns in reach... hmmmm....
quote: I would actually argue and say that there would be more crime, even if a small percentage more, if this laws did not exist.
quote: Ever heard of road-rage?
quote: I also don't care about you or you protecting yourself
quote: these laws are to protect me from idiots like you just as much as they are there to protect you from yourself
quote: You are clearly the one with a mental disability here.
quote: If you own a gun, it should come with the assumption that you are going to use it to kill someone!
