Many jurisdictions have warned drivers they may contravene road rules if they wear Google Glass while driving

Trial for Google Glass driving offence

A US woman is going on trial over the first known traffic citation for wearing Google Glass while driving.

Software developer Cecilia Abadie, who was pulled over in October, is among 30,000 people called "explorers" who were selected to try out the device before the technology becomes widely available to the public later this year.

She has pleaded not guilty and her lawyer William Concidine said the device was not activated when she was driving, but the trial in a San Diego traffic court could help shape future laws on wearable technology as it goes mainstream.
