As a Californian driver is accused of wearing a Google Glass while driving, it may only be a matter of time before a motorist in Britain is pulled over for the same thing.

As the law stands in Britain, there is no specific offence of using Google Glass while driving, although motorists may find themselves accused of not having proper control of their vehicle, or not having a full view of the road.

With consumer versions of Google Glass expected by the end of the year, it may only be a matter of time before a test case reaches Court or the government considers specific legislation.

In July, the Department of Transport said it was in discussion with the Police to prevent use of Google Glass while driving. Further news is awaited.
