Cleveland wants tougher law for passing buses
Nov 20, 2012 at 2:57 PM
The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer reports that a city councilman on Monday introduced an ordinance that would upgrade failure to stop for school buses to a first-degree misdemeanor — punishable by up to six months in jail, a $1,000 fine and a license suspension.
It's currently a minor misdemeanor, punishable by a $500 fine.
A municipal judge made national headlines when she ordered 32-year-old Shena Hardin to stand in public with a poster that read: "Only an idiot would drive on the sidewalk to avoid a school bus."
