SAN DIEGO, Calif. - Google Glass wearers need to be careful driving in California.  A woman was ticketed by a police officer for wearing the high-tech specs.

California’s law bans drivers from using a video monitor, if the monitor is visible to the driver and displays anything other than vehicle information global mapping displays, external media player (MP3), or satellite radio information.

Many questioned the legality of the ticket and some have encouraged her to fight it in court.

However, others see the ticket as valid, saying that Glass can obstruct your view and prove a distraction to driving.
