Police won’t charge Toronto mayor for on road cellphone use

Woman who told Mayor Ford to hang up says he gave her the finger

Police will not be charging Toronto mayor Rob Ford for talking on his cell phone while driving, The Globe and Mail reports. Police spokesman Mark Pugash says even though the mayor has admitted to using a handheld cellular device while operating a vehicle (an illegal act in Ontario since 2009), police not pursue charges for cellphone driving retroactively. A Toronto woman who asked Ford to hang up his phone while on the road says the mayor flipped her the bird immediately after. Ford denies the allegation, calling it a “misunderstanding”.
