An Unusual But Not Too Cruel Punishment

Have you ever been stuck behind a school bus, kids unloading, and gotten a little bit annoyed because you are in a hurry? You probably have. Did you get a creeping temptation to drive around the pedestrian children, avoiding them by driving onto the sidewalk? Didn't think so.

Shena Hardin got that feeling early and often. So much in fact she actually went around a bus loading a disabled child by driving on the sidewalk regularly, every morning in fact. The Cleveland locals complained about it and she was eventually caught, you can watch that here.

A judge has now suspended Hardin's license for 30 days and ordered her to pay $250 dollars in court costs. Additionally, Hardin will have to stand at an intersection for two days wearing a sign that says "Only an idiot drives on a sidewalk to avoid a school bus."

Take that Shena Hardin. AP story confirms here.

Given the options (find another route, leave earlier or later, etc.) this is the worst possible. Since fines for things like driving on the sidewalk and passing a stopped school bus are less than the court costs, the judge did what he could.

too lenient! if this had been a one time event where she just had a lapse in judgement this punishment would make sense but someone who did this multiple times like this should never have a drivers license ever again! she should have never qualified for a license in the first place! The tests need to be more strict and we should have to retest when we renew our licenses
