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 footpath to avoid a school bus.”
The judge ordered her to wear the sign from 7.45am to 8.45am both days.
Hardin’s licence was suspended for 30 days and she was ordered to pay $US250 ($A242.38) in court costs.
Messages seeking comment were left at a telephone listing for Hardin and at her lawyer’s office.
