New York escort service driver Deny Le got a ticket because he was wearing Google Glass while he was driving with Asian escort girl in Manhattan.
This Friday Le got a call from one New York escort manager, so he came to old customer with his escort girl in afternoon. He is wearing a new Google Glass which costs $1500 from Amazon and driving on local street. After a few minutes, Le was pulled over by police and given a ticket for speeding and driving while wearing Google Glass.
“A cop just stopped me and gave me a ticket for wearing Google Glass while driving for New York escorts! The exact line says: Driving with mobile phone to Driver (Google Glass),” said Le.
Google Glass is Google’s early version of a head-mounted computer display. A small square monitor sits above the right eye, just out of the normal line of vision. To view information on the display like a map or text message, the wearer must look up.
Google Glass defenders claim Glass is safer to use while driving than a smartphone since it can be voice controlled and you only have to glance up to view the Glass display. Many rallied to Abadie’s defense, even starting a #freececilia hashtag on Twitter.
When asked to comment on the case, a Google spokesperson sent the following statement to CNN:
“Glass is built to connect you more with the world around you, not distract you from it. As we make clear in our help center, Explorers should always use Glass responsibly and put their safety and the safety of others first.
“It’s early days for Glass and we look forward to hearing feedback from Explorers and others in advance of a wider consumer launch this year.”
On Google’s Glass FAQ page, the company warns: “Most states have passed laws limiting the use of mobile devices while driving any motor vehicle, and most states post those rules on their department of motor vehicles websites.
Finally, Le said, “I do think it leaves it up in the air for Google Glass wearers. They have to wear it with the possibility that they may get a ticket that they’ll have to fight until a legislator takes some sort of action.” We should add Google glass case to “Safety Tips of New York Escorts“.
