That she did this on a regular basis is astounding. Kudos to the bus driver for setting up the sting. I wonder if the cop was given a heads up too.

Somebody should have hit her over the head with the idiot sign and thrown her in front of oncoming traffic. My son rides a school bus and if I lived in Cleveland I would surely be pitching a stink about the severity of the offense vs. the punishment. This habitual offender took children's lives into her hands on more than one occasion, I wish she would/could have been charged with attempted vehicular assault or manslaughter and sat some time in jail wearing that stupid sign. Screw that judge...

There is a place in society for alternative punishments, especially those which publicly shame the guilty. There is a reason why public stocks were used in the old days.

I like the idea that those convicted of DUI having to put bright colored DUI license plates on their cars.

Of which there were clearly none.

Luckily humans are designed with apparatus that allows us to perceive objects in front of us.

Just watched it in fullscreen, she does go a bit quicker than it first looked.

Spank, stopping for children in school buses is a sacred cow in the US. You won't get anywhere with those comments.

I don't stop for sacred cows either.


Although I did today, the boss would have been very unhappy if I'd put a dent in the van that big.
