Video: Woman Must Wear 'Idiot' Sign for Driving on Sidewalk

November 06, 2012  | 

VIDEO: Driver Cited for Illegally Avoiding School Bus

A woman caught on video driving on a sidewalk to avoid a school bus that was unloading children must wear a sign warning about idiots, reports the Associated Press.

A Cleveland Municipal Court judge on Monday ordered 32-year-old Shena Hardin to stand at an intersection with a sign stating, "Only an idiot drives on the sidewalk to avoid a school bus."

Cleveland Police cited Hardin in October, after the bus driver captured her violation on a camera phone.

Priceless!! Finally, a judge who gets it!!

While this is hilarious, I have two questions:

What is this teaching her?
And is everyone ready for the lawsuit? I'd bet she's sues for some sort of mental anguish or something equally as stupid down the road.

Awesome! A little public humiliation for stupidity may go a long way. On the other hand, you can educate the ignorant, but stupidity is forever.

Who is she going to sue, Nichole? You can't sue judges. A little public shaming can't hurt when you do something as thoughtless as this.

I really hope someone out there takes pictures of this and posts them. I would really love to see this. Serves her right. I wonder what the hell was going through her mind. MORON or IDIOT!!

She's going to ue the judge. He blatantly violated her rights in sentencing like this, this is complete bull shit. She'll get state $$ from tax payers in the 1,000,000s.

I like it. We had a judge in Nebraska order a multiple DUI offender to pay for a full page ad in the newspaper. The top half was his picture, the rest of the ad identified him as a drunk driver on probation. It also told people. "if you see me in a bar, call the police".

Nicole and John: you can't sue a judge in most states, just like you can't sue an attorney for their "opinion." This woman is no where near up to the intelligence level of an idiot! Too bad she didn't lose her license for a longer period of time. Even 30 days won't fix stupid!

I agree.. This punishment fits the crime...
