A San Diego woman has become the first known person to get a ticket for wearing Google Glass while driving.

On Google+, Cecelia Abadie shared, "A cop just stopped me and gave me a ticket for wearing Google Glass while driving! The exact line says: Driving with Monitor visible to Driver (Google Glass). Is #GoogleGlass ilegal (sic) while driving or is this cop wrong??? Any legal advice is appreciated!!"

Abadie said the device was not activated at the time, but was also cited for driving 80 mph in a 65 mph zone which you have to think set the stage.
