A woman in California was pulled over this week while driving. She wasn’t speeding, or drunk. But maybe the officer thought she was texting — with her eyes. Cecilia Abadie was ticketed by a California Highway Patrol officer for wearing her Google Glass while driving. The CHP issued a statement saying it is illegal under California law to have a video screen near the driver’s seat, let alone on the driver’s face.

The incident might be a first in a complicated matter for Google. Russell Brandom of The Verge discusses the story with Marketplace Tech host Ben Johnson.
