OHIO WOMAN ORDERED TO WEAR "IDIOT" SIGN

When I read about a woman who was caught driving on a sidewalk to avoid a school bus, I didn't know whether I should laugh or be appalled. Honestly, I often find myself scratching my head wondering what people are thinking. Apparently a 32-year-old woman in Cleveland, Shena Hardin, pulled her car up onto the sidewalk to get around a stopped school bus. It was reported that the bus driver had observed Ms. Hardin doing this maneuver on a number of occasions and he was able to catch her in the act by using his cell phone to get a video. Fortunately, the police were called and she was apprehended. As a result of her reckless behavior, she was fined $250 and her license was suspended for 30 days. But the kicker is, the judge has ordered her to wear a sign that says, "Only an idiot would drive on the sidewalk to avoid the school bus." She has to stand near the "crime scene" and wear the sign for a total of two hours. 

I'm amazed at how brazen some people can be in deliberately breaking the traffic laws - even when it puts school children at risk.  Maybe some public humiliation will have an impact on this woman and correct her dangerous behavior.  What do you think of the Judge's sentence?  

Of couse, it's a whole other matter if this woman would have hit a pedestrian on the sidewalk.  Thankfully none of the school kids were outside of the bus when this woman pulled this dangerous maneuver.
