The driver is questioning the merit of the ticket

Law enforcement looks down on smartphone and tablet use when driving in many states, and now, Google Glass is on their radar as well (at least in California).
According to Engadget, San Diego commuter Cecilia Abadie received a ticket when local police spotted her wearing her Google Glass while driving. The ticket states that her charge is "Driving with Monitor visible to Driver (Google Glass).”
Abadie, who was wearing her Explorer Edition when the ticket was issued, jumped on Google+ after the incident to share her story. She’s also questioning the merit of the ticket, hoping another local will be able to share their thoughts on the merit of the ticket.

Google Glass is a wearable device from Google that displays information in a hands-free way via natural language voice commands. The glasses allow the user to see information right on the lens in front of them. 

The Explorer Edition, which costs a hefty $1500, was released in February 2013. The consumer version, expected to cost $300 to $500, will be released in 2014.
