November 21, 2013 (San Diego) The California Highway Patrol has issued a citation to a county driver for wearing Google Glass while operating a vehicle. This is in violation of Vehicle Code 27602.

This section of the vehicle code states that it is illegal to: "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 a point forward of the back of the driver's seat, or is operating and the monitor, screen, or display is visible to the driver while driving the motor vehicle."

Suffice it to say, if you have acquired those devices, be aware that you can be cited.
