Woman sentenced to wear “idiot” sign

Can a judge even do this? It’s so medieval. Not that I disagree with the idea, necessarily. I’m just surprised it was allowed.

A Cleveland woman caught driving on a sidewalk to avoid a school bus has been sentenced to stand at an intersection for an hour each day on two separate days, wearing a sign that reads “Only an idiot drives on the sidewalk to avoid a school bus.”

I think I might get where she got the idea. Dudes do this sort of thing ALL THE TIME in action movies – though usually to avoid guys with guns and very rarely to avoid school buses – and almost never get arrested. Those movies are a bad influence.

Here’s video.  (Via Huffington Post)
