Somtimes you have to wonder "What were they thinking" when you see a truly stupid move made by a driver. Here is the case of a driver who has made the move of passing a school bus using the sidewalk (yes, the sidewalk) a part of her daily routine. She was finally captured on video by the school bus driver one Tuesday morning while the school bus was loading children. She was eventually cited for not stopping for a school bus, but clearly this was a very dangerous move to both the children entering the bus as well as an pedestrians in the area. The following video was taken by the driver of the school bus, who caught the driver in the act.

This has to be one of the stupidest" moves I've seen in many years of driving. The judge took a unique approach and ordered her to wear a sign stating "Only an idiot would drive on the sidewalk to avoid a school bus". This is a unique sentence and appropriate, but I wonder if the driver has learned anything from the punishment.
