CLEVELAND (AP) - A woman caught on camera driving on a sidewalk to avoid a Cleveland school bus that was unloading children is standing in the cold at an intersection holding a sign warning people about idiots.
A Cleveland Municipal Court judge ordered 32-year-old Shena Hardin to serve the highly public sentence for one hour Tuesday and Wednesday. She arrived bundled up against the 34-degree cold, puffing a cigarette, wearing head phones and avoiding comment as passing vehicles honked. Satellite TV trucks are on hand to stream the event live near downtown Cleveland.
The sign reads: "Only an idiot would drive on the sidewalk to avoid a school bus." Hardin's license was suspended for 30 days and she was ordered to pay $250 in court costs.
