World’s Most Entitled Driver Sentenced to Wear “Idiot” Sign

8:18 AM PST on November 8, 2012

Need a break from election coverage? Check out this shoo-in for the bad driver hall of fame: In an attempt to avoid waiting behind a school bus unloading children, a Cleveland-area woman was caught driving on the sidewalk.

But after some unorthodox punishment, handed down by a local judge, we're guessing 32-year-old Shena Hardin won't try that trick again. Hardin has been ordered to stand at an intersection two mornings next week wearing a sign that says, "Only an idiot drives on the sidewalk to avoid a school bus."

She will also have her license suspended for 30 days and pay $250, according to the Associated Press.
