Rob Ford caught reading and driving. Toronto Police say it's legal. What about this woman?

Mayor Rob Ford was caught reading and driving on the Gardiner this morning.

I always thought this was illegal.  It should be seeing how it's illegal to drive and use an electronic device.  Toronto Police Services say that it's perfectly legal, and no charges will be laid against the Mayor. 

That brings me to a different question. 

"WOODSTOCK, Ont. — A 63-year-old Innerkip, Ont., woman is facing careless driving charges because she just couldn’t resist a good book.

On Tuesday at around12:15 p.m., an officer was conducting a routine patrol on Highway 401 in the Woodstock area when he spotted a driver reading a book in plain sight while travelling at 100 km/hour.

Carmen Velocci has been charged with careless driving under the Highway Traffic Act."

Why was THIS woman charged then?  C'mon cops!  You can't charge one woman and not the Mayor.  Either drop her charges or charge the Mayor, or please explain to me how these cases are different.
