Sidewalk driving? What was she thinking?
The Kansas City Star
The punishment that Shena Hardin received was tame compared to what she did in Cleveland.
She drove on the sidewalk past a stopped school bus. Buses have stop signs out requiring motorists to wait while the vehicles pick up children.
It is a safety feature, which Hardin blew past. Children could have been injured or worse.
As punishment, Municipal Court Judge Pinkey Carr required Hardin on Tuesday and Wednesday to stand at the curb with a sign that read, “Only an idiot would drive on the sidewalk to avoid a school bus.”
The Associated Press reported that Hardin’s license was suspended for 30 days, and she had to pay $250 in court costs.
Yes, she got off with a light sentence. Jail time wouldn’t have been enough.
