I saw the video of her driving on the sidewalk to avoid the school bus and witness say it is not the first time she has done it. I think she got off very easy, she should have been punished way more heavily.

For once the punishment fits the crime.

I saw a news crew interview her mother, who was in the car at the time the video was taken. She complained that the bus stops to pick up a handicap child and it takes forever. So, instead of going one street over and avoiding the long delay, this idiot chooses to jump on the sidewalk. Both, the driver and her mom, are complete idiots.

Public humiliation is the way to go for non-violent crimes like this. You're -really- not likely to do it again if you're going to end up being shamed in front of the entire community. Well, not unless you're a complete sociopath, anyway.

It kinda harkens back to the old days of putting minor criminals in the village stocks and pelting them with garbage. :p

From what I read, on the teletext, she did this daily.

I think the judge was not harsh enough.

If this had happened in Britain, she would have been fined at least £800, given 200 hours community service (if not locked up) and banned for at least 3 years.

She got off lightly.

I personally would have put her in prison for 2 years and banned her from driving for ever.

Then those retards (which I agree that they are) shouldn't have been allowed on the road in the first place. I can't speak of other drive tests at other DMVs but I know the one in Daytona Beach is about the easiest thing in the world. It's closed course, you get in your car, stop at a light, stop at a stop sign, show that you can signal correctly and that's it. No parking, no traffic nothing.

It doesn't have to be a law, it should just be common sense. But then again coming to a stop at a stop sign is too difficult for a lot of people in this country and you end up with stuff like this: http://www.wfaa.com/...-177177461.html

But apologies for Canada so I'll rephrase it to most other countries.


I find the ease of which and the you age you can get a drivers license in America horrifyingly scary.

it's rumored she did not have insurance for that alone she should have lost her license for at least 180 days and for the crime she did commit she should have lost it permanently, as it could have resulted in deaths of children. She should have also been forced to wear the sign and walk around with that on her for 3 months as well as having to help at children's charities.

I have but if you read on I said there are other countries where kids walk off school buses (or even regular public transportation) and cross the road just fine without being run over.

It doesn't have to be a law, it should just be common sense.

Edit: Sorry I just realized that my original post came out kindoff stupid. I meant to say that I think it's retarded that it needs to be a law to prevent people doing that. But I can no longer edit that post so this counts as that edit lol.


Haha okay yeah that makes sense. I was reading this article and was like "is this guy serious wtf". but yeah the fact that there needs to be a law in place is kinda stupid. but hey...what can you do? :)

I find it pretty funny actually. Now I find the whole stop behind a school bus that's unloading children absolutely retarded (no other country has this and kids aren't dying on the streets)


I'm starting to see the origins of america's problems: selection is based on casual lucky and not on the fittest
Btw evolution is wrong, so if God want to kill a kid maybe there's the possibility that that kid growing would have done something terrible like becoming a liberal
