Sidewalk driver sentenced

A judge in Ohio has come up with an unusual punishment for a dangerous driver.

Shena Hardin will have to hold up a sign saying "only an idiot would drive on the sidewalk to avoid a school bus" after she did just that.

Witnesses say she used to drive on the pavement all the time to avoid the school bus as it stopped to pick up and drop off children in Cleveland.

She was caught because someone on the bus used a mobile phone filmed her.

Hardin will also lose her licence for 30 days and have to pay a big fine.
