(NY Daily News) Shena Hardin, 32, pulled the off-road move twice to avoid stopping for the students, local WEWS-TV reported.
The bus driver, Uriah Herron, shot video of Hardin pulling the maneuver in her silver Jeep in east Cleveland on the first day of school in September.
He tipped off police, and Hardin was busted a few days later after doing it again.
She appeared in court on Monday and was cited for not stopping for a school bus.
Along with paying a $250 fine, Hardin must stand at the intersection where she was caught next Tuesday and Wednesday wearing a sign that says: “Only an idiot drives on the sidewalk to avoid a school bus.”
She will also lose her license for 30 days.
