texting possibly causing a plane crash and just days after a woman was charged for reading a book while driving over 100 km/h comes a new photo of Toronto's mayor breaking the same law.On the same day a story broke about
The photo was posted on Twitter by user @RyanGHaughton, who said in a later tweet that "the picture was taken around 10am while on the Gardner and traffic was moving about 70 km heading eastbound just by Jameson."
Ford admitted later Tuesday that he "probably" was reading while behind the wheel of his black Cadillac Escalade.
"Yeah, probably, yeah. I'm try[ing] to catch up on my work and you know I keep my eyes on the road, but I'm a busy man."
The woman caught reading a book was charged with careless driving under the Highway Traffic Act. But Ford was not impressed with the line of questioning.
"Ridiculous questions sometimes, seriously."
The twitter account the offending photo first appeared on has been deleted.
It's not the first time Ford has had an incident behind the wheel. In July he got into a confrontation with a streetcar operator after driving past the streetcar's open doors. In October Ford was accused of using a cellphone while driving and last July he denied flipping the bird to a woman who challenged him for using his phone while driving.
