West Virginia legislators, submitter. Considering they just got electricity last year, I don't really think they understand what Google Glass is.

No Such Agency: Yeah because nobody ever controlled a vehicle with information being projected into their FOV before.

If people were gonna use the Glass to display speed, direction, navigational info, etc, I'd agree with the sentiment, but you know damn well that people would be using the Glass to update FB/Twitter or surf porn while they were driving.

Treygreen13: Worth it to keep it off your record, and to further inconvenience anyone who is willing to bring a fraudulent charge against you. If I'm innocent, I fight it regardless of cost. The only thing sweeter than getting a ticket thrown out is getting it thrown out while the cop who issued it is sitting there.


FYI, in most places around the country, the officer's word is sufficient evidence for guilt, just like failure to stop at a stop sign, etc.

Not saying you cannot win, but I will say that I see quite a few people just pleading guilty to that one here in MD.

omnimancer28: Treygreen13: And, of course, it will be about as effective and enforceable as the "No Texting While Driving" law.

My girlfriend got pulled over for the "no texting" thing. She had just changed the song on her very old school iPod. The cop acted like he'd never heard of a device that didn't have texting capabilities... before he let her go "with a verbal warning". Yeah, real effective. Even if it had been a iPhone with the text app open and a half-written message sitting in the field, good luck proving that is exactly what the person is doing when the police officer saw them.

In my county they would just ticket you for distracted or reckless driving. There is no need to "prove" anything. And if you want to contest the ticket the traffic court fee is larger than the ticket even if you win.

The most distracting thing for a driver is not a hands free device taking up a small part of your field of view, it is that squalling brat in the back seat.

 want my speed displayed in line of sight.

I'd settle for "not hiding behind the arc of the steering wheel".  WTF car designers?  I'm an exactly average-height man, this shouldn't happen ever :P

Sigh... the equivalent of throwing the lawn darts at another kid's head: ruining something cool for everyone else.
