Road Rage Is Universal...

A bunch of people sent me this story. I think I would actually burst a blood vessel and die on the spot if I ever witnessed something like this happening. Either that or chase the stupid bint down in my truck and reduce her vehicle to a smoking hulk...

Ohio woman who drove on sidewalk to avoid school bus ordered to wear 'idiot' sign
CLEVELAND – A woman caught on camera driving on a sidewalk to avoid a Cleveland school bus that was unloading children will have to stand at an intersection wearing a sign warning about idiots.

Court records show a Cleveland Municipal Court judge on Monday ordered 32-year-old Shena Hardin to stand at an intersection for two days next week. She will have to wear a sign saying: "Only an idiot drives on the sidewalk to avoid a school bus."
I have to post the video. You absolutely have to see this to believe it:



BTW, the building she was driving on the sidewalk in front of? It's a day care.

I'm certain the entire punishment will be appealed and thrown out on the basis of being cruel and unusual, but kudos to the judge for daring to think outside the box. I would have liked to have seen mandatory driver re-training as well, but I guess that would be asking too much.

Just when you think you've seen everything...

That is all.

It looks like the driver had his phone camera ready because he knew what she'd do--the footage is from two different days. (On the first clip, there's nobody in front of her when she takes the detour, but on the second clip, she's behind another vehicle when she goes the same route.)

There's nothing that would convince me to not yank her license for good if I were the judge on the bench that day.

Not driver retraining. License revocation. She's probably MORE dangerous than a repeat drunk driver.

You obliterate the car while I smear her all over the street. K?

I drove through Kandahar City a couple days ago... let's just say it is not something I'd be willing to do in anything other than a 20 ton armored truck.

Spike strips on the sidewalks?
