If stupidity is a prerequisite for driving on sidewalk to get around a school bus, Cleveland’s Miss Hardin is probably an Obama voter as well.
news5net – Shena Hardin, 32, of Cleveland, forced to stand on the corner carrying a sign reading “Only an idiot would drive on the sidewalk to avoid a school bus.”
When Cleveland Municipal Court Judge Pinky Carr handed out the unusual punishment, it was in part because she had few other options. Under Cleveland law, the offense was a minor misdemeanor, which limited the punishment the judge could deliver.
Carr was among those looking on Monday night as Cleveland City Council took the first step towards changing that with an ordinance that would bump the offense up to a first-degree misdemeanor. That would mean judges in the future would have the option of penalties, including up to six months in jail and up to a $1,000 fine.
The measure will now be sent to a council committee.
