Update – Woman Drives On Curb To Avoid Stopping for School Bus
A While ago I posted a video about a woman who drove her car on a sidewalk to avoid a stopped school bus. Well, he punishment is in.
Shena Hardin, 32, of Cleveland pleaded guilty to not stopping for a school bus and reckless operation. A Cleveland Municipal Court judge ordered her driver’s license suspended for 30 days and ordered her to pay $250 in court costs. That’s not all though!!
Hardin will also have to stand on the intersection of the crime, wearing a sign that reads “Only an idiot would drive on the sidewalk to avoid the school bus,” She has to wear the sign for an hour a day for two days next week.
I am not sure how I feel about embarrassment as a punishment, especially in a case where lives could have been in danger. There are other factors here, she also lost her license for a while, but is the right punishment?
What do you think?
