Atrocious Driver Forced To Wear Idiot Sign in Public

Posted November 9, 2012 in Traffic tickets and accidents by

A woman who drove up on a sidewalk to pass a stopped school bus full of children in Cleveland will have to wear a sign in public identifying herself as an idiot, a judge ruled.

Sheena Hardin was filmed by a school bus driver in September as she veered onto the sidewalk so she wouldn’t have to wait for the bus as it stopped to let schoolkids on and off. A judge ordered Hardin, 32, to stand for an hour for two days at the intersection where she got caught and wear a 22″ by 22″ sign with the words “Only an idiot drives on the sidewalk to avoid a school bus” written in all capital letters in black marker.

In court she she pleaded no contest to not stopping for a school bus and reckless operation on a street or highway. In addition to announcing to the world that she is an idiot, Hardin will lose her license for 30 days and have to pay $250 in court costs.

Apparently, this was not the first time she had used the sidewalk to get around the bus. In the video, the bus driver says, “Here she comes,” as Hardin approaches in a silver SUV and doesn’t slow as she dodges up to the sidewalk and back to the street. She was promptly pulled over by a waiting police officer.
