Google Glass Ruled Not a Distraction
In October 2013, a California woman pulled over for speeding was cited for distracted driving as well. The distracted driving citation was for wearing Google Glass while driving, something that may become more common once this product is released to the public.
In January, a San Diego traffic dismissed the case against this driver stating there was no way for the officer to know if the Google Glass were on at the time of the stop. Because distraction could not be proven, the driver was able to escape fines in this particular case.
How Safe is Google Glass?
Google Glass projects images just beyond the nose and slightly above a user’s line of sight. It is easy to see how using Google Glass while driving, even briefly, can increase the risk for causing car accidents. Because Google Glass has not been released to the public yet, legislation regarding its use while driving is a ways off. However, if you or a loved one sustain injury from a driver using Google Glass, the New Hampshire car accident attorneys at Van Dorn & Curtiss are prepared to take your case and fight for you, helping you secure maximum compensation.
