Lady driver ordered to wear ‘idiot sign’ by court (video)
BAD drivers are the bane of everyone’s lives, but some are more idiotic than others. One lady in Ohio has managed to sidestep the political fervour that rampaged through her State to become an officially court-ordered ‘idiot’. How? She actually being made to wear an idiot sign after being caught doing something really idiotic in her car.
The woman in question repeatedly drove onto a pavement to overtake an unloading school bus. That’s not clever is it?
The judge at Cleveland Municipal Court told Shena Hardin that she would have to wear a sign saying “Only an idiot drives on the sidewalk to avoid a school bus” as well as being fined $250.
Shena was caught after the concerned bus driver decided to film her stupid manoeuvre and inform the police. Hardin had done this on a number of occasions and when the driver had the tape at the ready, she didn’t disappoint.
The video itself has since gone viral, which shows Shena mounting the kerb in her vehicle and razzing down the pavement, which has seen her being found guilty of not stopping for a school bus and reckless operation. And now, she’s going to have to return to the scene of the crime for two hours next week, wearing the sign.
Is this something that all judges should consider? Should we make flashers wear signs saying ‘I’m a dirty bugger’ in parks? Should jewel thieves be forced into sporting neon hats that say ‘I want your jewels because I can’t be bothered getting a real job’?
