Bad driver must wear 'idiot' sign
Wed, 07 Nov 2012 2:22p.m.
A woman caught on camera driving on a sidewalk to avoid a Cleveland school bus that was unloading children will have to stand at an intersection wearing a sign warning about idiots.
Court records show a Cleveland Municipal Court judge on Monday ordered 32-year-old Shena Hardin to stand at an intersection for two days next week. She will have to wear a sign saying: "Only an idiot drives on the sidewalk to avoid a school bus."
The judge ordered her to wear the sign from 7:45am to 8:45am both days.
Hardin's license was suspended for 30 days and she was ordered to pay US$250 in court costs.
Messages seeking comment were left at a telephone listing for Hardin and at her attorney's office.

How refreshing to see there are still places in the world where 'sensible sentencing' is still carried out. In NZ we are way too PC as well as still more interested in keeping the villains happy than assisting victims. Can you just hear the greenies screaming and ranting and raving if a sentence like that was handed down here? BUT WAIT! THERE'S MORE! If you make the judge smile you can get off with no conviction.

Back to the days of public embaressment as a punishment, i actually quite like it. You do have to be at best, semi-retarded to think its a good idea to drive on the footpath to avoid a school bus though.
