You might recall last month when we told you about the Ohio woman who was so determined to drive around a stopped school bus she drove on the sidewalk-in front of a preschool. This week a judge sentenced that driver, Shena Hardin, 32, after she plead guilty. Hardin was fined $250 and had her license suspended for 30 days by a Cleveland Municipal Court on Monday. The judge also required her to stand on the same corner where she evaded the bus (which was stopped to pick-up a handicapped child) wearing a sign which reads “Only an idiot drives on the sidewalk to avoid a school bus.” Hardin is required by the judge to stand there next Tuesday and Wednesday, from 7:45-8:45 a.m., with the sign hanging around her neck.

According to the bus driver which Hardin passed, she had been driving around his stopped bus for several days. He had notified his boss, the school and the local police, all of whom converged on the scene and used surveillance video cameras to record her dangerous (and idiotic) behavior. A teacher at the pre-school across the street from the stopped bus, where Hardin used the sidewalk as an impromptu travel lane, remarked to a local news reporter at the time that it was not uncommon for her to take her pre-school students for a walk on that very sidewalk at that very time; it was just a lucky coincidence they weren’t standing on that sidewalk when Hardin drove on it.

Hardin serves as an example of just what happens when you drive stupid. Not only do you risk fines, suspension of your driving privileges and possibly killing or hurting someone, but you also risk your dignity. Hopefully she will not need a further reminder of just how dangerous her driving behavior was and will never, ever, pass a stopped school bus again.
