Woman Drives On Sidewalk To Get Around Bus Unloading Children, Ordered To Stand On Corner Wearing 'Idiot' Sign

A woman in Ohio was recently ordered to stand at an intersection holding a sign that reads, "Only an idiot drives on the sidewalk to avoid a school bus" after, get this -- driving on the sidewalk to avoid a school bus. Amazingly, the whole thing was caught on tape because apparently kids on the bus just sit around filming traffic instead of learning new dirty words like you're supposed to. (Full disclosure: actually filmed by the bus driver after repeated occurrences, which explains the cop waiting at the end of the street to bust her).

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 7:45 a.m. to 8:45 a.m. both days.

Hardin's license was suspended for 30 days and she was ordered to pay $250 in court costs.

Listen: we've all driven on the sidewalk before, you just can't do it when there's a school bus nearby. That's a no-no. Garbage truck, sure. "Please tell me you're joking." I thought they made sidewalks FOR emergency lanes. "No, they make them for walking." Emergency lanes! "Walking." Okay what about for parking?

Hit the jump for a video of the sadness.

Thanks to a different Michael than the last one. Crazy, so many Michaels! And to Dustin, who drives a monster truck.
