News Summary: Driver cited wearing Google Glass


FIGHT ON: An early adopter of Google's Internet-connected eyeglasses plans to fight a citation for wearing the device while driving in California, saying the technology makes navigation easier than smartphones and GPS devices.

PULLED OVER: Cecilia Abadie was pulled over for speeding Tuesday, and a California Highway Patrol officer noticed she was wearing Google Glass and added a citation usually given to drivers who may be distracted by a video or TV screen. Abadie, a software developer, told The Associated Press that she was not using her Google Glass when she was pulled over.

NEW LAWS COMING?: A challenge to what may be a first-of-its-kind citation could force authorities to consider how best to regulate evolving gadgetry that will one day become mainstream.
