How about just driving your farking car.  Can you manage that?

Let me guess...

When Google Glass becomes "mainstream" and everyone else gets tickets for the same thing, she is going to stand up and say "I got tickets for this, before it was cool"

farking hipsters.

My wife and I drive Beemers, because, frankly, we're better drivers than all you people. I also don't own a TeeVee and I use a non-ironic rotary phone. Pretty much King Sh*T of F*ck Island over here with our Google Glasses.

Just about every action you take in this country is illegal.
Selective enforcement is the rule not the exception.
Just try irritating a cop on a bad day and you will find out dozens of laws you violated.  Some you didn't even know existed.

2). What is a hipster? According to Fark, anybody not wearing pleated Dockers and a Tommy Bahama golf shirt is a hipster.

As usual, Fark is late on a tech story.  Slashdot (which itself is always late) discussed this case anyway.

She wasn't pulled over for using Google Glass, she was pulled over for speeding.  If you're an ass and you're speeding enough to get a ticket sometimes you get these violations tacked on.

So, using Google Glasses for navigation is a non-starter, I guess. Too bad. I was hoping the the technology for augmented reality would get good enough that you could overlay data from a forward-looking infrared camera to help define obstacles at night. It would be just the thing in Northern Wisconsin when you are trying to avoid grilling any venison.

You know its funny, other day I just got google glasses and a samsung Galaxy S4, my wife's in the passenger seat tinkering with it asking if I wanted to set it up.... She's asian so this explains why they have so many accidents besides not being able to see over the steering wheel, probably from playing with silly darwin gadgets while DRIVING.

/Best thing I ever got was the Samsung S4, I have a dock in my truck so when I drive I don't even have to look at the phone, If someone calls I just say "ANSWER CALL" and "sorry I am driving catch you later".

//I coin the phrase Darwin Toys, because the more village idiots play with their toys while walking or driving, the higher risk factor for getting into an accident

Did Google not perform any market research on whether driving with Glass is considered illegal or not?

You'd think they would have done so and posted clear warnings on the product.
 
2013-10-31 09:28:21 AM
I think everyone should be driving with google glasses. Seriously. With the following stipulations


If you are wearing the glasses:

1. they must be turned on.
2. The GPS (and accelerometer if it has one) must be on
3. The glasses must be recording while driving.
4. Police get full access to the GPS and video records.
 
2013-10-31 09:30:31 AM
Most Google glasses are disguised as ordinary spectacles. Something California cops will "discover" soon, and have to work overtime writing tickets.

I watched one of these idiots argue with a bouncer tirelessly while going into a bar. Jackass refused to remove his Google Glass, stating it was not set to record and he shouldn't need to remove it.

I hate to side with any bouncer but this guy needed a cock punch.

If it hasn't already happened its just a matter of time before people start taking them into locker rooms and restrooms.

No, you can use devices that show navigation and audio/radio information.   The trick is proving the monitor was not showing something other than those things.  The cop felt like giving her a hard time for speeding and being a geek, so she'll have to go through the motions in court to argue a lack of evidence the device was on.   She can do so in court.   (She claims it wasn't on at all.)  Here's the relevant section of the law:

(a)A person may not drive a motor vehicle if a television receiver, a video monitor, or a television or video screen, or any other, similar means of visually displaying a television broadcast or video signal that produces entertainment or business applications, is operating and is located in the motor vehicle at any point forward of the back of the driver's seat, or is operating and visible to the driver while driving the motor vehicle.

(b)Subdivision (a) does not apply to the following equipment when installed in a vehicle:

(1)A vehicle information display.

(2)A global positioning display.

(3)A mapping display.

(4)A visual display used to enhance or supplement the driver's view forward, behind, or to the sides of a motor vehicle for the purpose of maneuvering the vehicle.

(5)A television receiver, video monitor, television or video screen, or any other, similar means of visually displaying a television broadcast or video signal, if that equipment has an interlock device that, when the motor vehicle is driven, disables the equipment for all uses except as a visual display as described in paragraphs (1) to (4), inclusive.

How do you know they don't have warnings? Since when have people been smart and responsible enough to pay any attention to warnings like that anyway? If the people who do things like this dumb biatch in the article did had the common sense to heed such a warning they wouldn't even need it in the first place.

The more you eat the more you fart: ...and who tickets the cops for playing with their laptop, radar, radio, etc while driving?


I don't know, why don't you go find a story about that and submit it so that your comment will have a thread where it would be relevant?

Just with less bleeding from my eye-holes and psychotic episodes of tanks rolling across my desk when I'm not using the glasses.
 
2013-10-31 09:44:17 AM
Just to follow up on my own comment, I suppose the phrase "when installed in a vehicle" would rule out Google Glass.  However, it would also rule out any phone-based or aftermarket GPS, unless putting it on a mount counts as being "installed."

As someone who lives and works in an enclave of young people, this is going to get me painted as a fark hipster, but the word 'hipster' went eye-rollingly out of style about 3 years ago.

It also never referred to anyone who was a techie/geek like who would be interested in google glass and this usage makes you seem out of touch.

My elderly neighbor started using the word a few months ago to describe anyone younger than 50.

Now that said, my favorite term of late for my underemployed neighbors and coffee shop compatriots is 'Beardo'.

I'm all for allowing folks to use a decent heads up display like google glasses. The real issue is, that people like the woman in TFA, and others mentioned in this thread have all failed to use discretion. If they simply removed the glasses at a time where an authority checks you out, the issue with illegally using them would never have manifested. Just shows that there are still idiots out there with more money to burn then they may well deserve to have.

Can't wait for the iGlasses. lol

I read about it yesterday on google news.

Let me explain San Diego freeway driving (no, not the 405, I would have capitalized the f). Most of the time, you're doing 80mph at less than 2 car lengths from the car in front of you. Do you really want the person behind you, or in front of you concentrating even for a second on their Google Glass or their GPS or anything other than traffic?

Wrong.

I guarantee you this citation was written because the driver had a camera on her face when she was talking to the cop, rather than because she was wearing a screen.

Yeah, but those were not augmented reality. They didn't have a way to accurately track head position, so the display was just a little distracting square that the driver had to look away from the road to see. I would think that would be worse than having nothing.

Yeah, but here's the stupid thing about this law, what I was looking at is my word against the cop's...   we know how that usually goes in traffic court.  So for practical reasons I can't use the GPS/ Map Apps on a smartphone in my car because that display *could* also show me other things.

"You honor, it appears to me that the driver was using his smartphone to watch a Jonas Brothers video on his iPhone."

"Mr Impotence, I find you guilty of the violation, as well as guilty of the crime of watching a Jonas Brothers video at all.  Fifty dollars for the first charge, ten years in the state prison for the latter."  *bangs gavel*

Guess I need to get out my seven year old Garmin after all.

What the article omits is that the asshat was ticketed for doing 80 in a 65, and that wearing the Google Glass was a secondary violation... so fark her.

Here's the ticket... speeding info in blue boxes, Google glass info in red oval:

Driving with Google Glass on?

I am from Raleigh, NC and let me tell you, the people that commute to Research Triangle every day pride themselves on how many things they can do while driving. I have seen people eating eggs and bacon, reading a novel, combing their hair, and perusing their first presentation for the day... and that was just one driver!

If it could be locked into a GPS only mode it might not be an issue.  The problem is the cop doesn't know if you were using it for GPS or trying to watch donkey pr0n while driving.
