Google Glass is not safe for driving

October 31, 2013

Cecilia Abadie has suddenly becoming an internet celebrity when she claimed to be the first person ticketed for using Google Glass while driving, she posted the story and the ticket at her Google+ page, the post created quite a ruckus especially among Google and Android-oriented sites. Many of them, of course, are siding with Cecilia to fight for the Google Glass violation.

While the support for Cecilia grows, a Google spokeperson reached out to PC World with the following statement:

“As we make clear in our help center, Explorers should always use Glass responsibly and put their safety and the safety of others first.  More broadly, Glass is built to connect you more with the world around you, not distract you from it. It’s early days for Glass and we look forward to hearing feedback from Explorers and others in advance of a wider consumer launch next year.”

I totally agree with the first two sentences, for whatever reasons or excuses, no one should ever intentionally or un-intentionally distracted while driving. If you’re driving a car in high speed, you’re driving a killing machine that is capable of hurting or even kill others on site.

And here’s the irony burried under the silly issue: Cecilia admitted that she was speeding.
