    What that driver did... didn't even make sense at all. Heck, to even go on the sidewalk just makes it worse... Sometimes I doubt the intelligence of people of our world.

    Still... I don't know.

    That's a retarded punishment. Stand on a crossroad wearing a sign that says that you are an idiot? Sounds cool, but isn't that against human basic rights?

    Well, sometimes punishments should be degrading. Just like I've seen happen to taggers some places, if they got busted, they had to wash/paint every wall they have their tag on before punishment is over.

    Good! Suspended license and made to look like an idiot. I would've made the sentence longer though.

    That I can understand. But this is just humiliating. We should not humiliate people just because they are dumb.

    I don't see anything wrong with the punishment. This woman was doing something she shouldn't be doing, like the man said, "Justice has been served".

    She wasn't dumb, she just did something stupid and I think the punishment she got is a decent one.

    I know shaming and humiliation is bad, but this woman did something very wrong, she could have ran over someone when doing that.

    Of course not, you shouldn't because of that. But again, we don't know much about the driver. It was a dumb action though, but should also be helpful. I would like if punishments helped the community a bit too. The driver could have helped by holding up a stop sign and control the traffic near a school then. Would be helpful.

    i would be against public humiliation for an honest mistake, but this is just being irresponsible.
    i dont see why the fuck she goes on the sidewalk anyway, she could have just kept driving in her lane.

    I don't pre-judge people. But the video there, there must have been an intelligence fuse on that person's head that just flicked off.

    Because the street laws require you to stop on both sides of the road while there is a school bus stopped. Its so kids going both ways on the road can get away before traffic is moving around them. She drove up on the sidewalk because she thought that was far enough away from the bus to justify not stopping. Of course then she got busted for leaving the pavement AND driving past a bus endangering kids.

    Unfortunately in some places around the US, there are whole large areas of people who suffer a severe form of 'don't give a F about anyone or anything'.

    Oh lol I didn't know this. Now this video actually makes sense. I mean, it really doesnt, but I can see where she was coming from.

    I still think she should have gotten some other form of punishment. Like escorting children over the street or something like this. Holding this sign up is only going to upset her.

    I do sadly know this, and I also know that this is within all borders. One can just hope to be a bit more thoughtful and then avoid such people.

    You really want to put more kids lives in her hands? She already put their lives along with any person who might be walking down the sidewalk or from around the corner of a building in danger.
