(AP) The Southern California woman cited for wearing Internet-connected eyeglasses while driving says she expects to contest the citation.


Cecilia Abadie was pulled over for speeding Tuesday evening in San Diego, when a California Highway Patrol officer noticed she was wearing Google Glass and tacked on a citation usually given to drivers who may be distracted by a video or TV screen.


Abadie tells The Associated Press that she was not using her Google Glass when she was pulled over.


She says she is surprised that wearing the glasses would be illegal and that she's "pretty sure" she will fight the ticket.


Legislators in several states have introduced bills that would specifically ban driving with the glasses, which are still not widely available to the public.
