Jeep Driver Uses Sidewalk to Bypass School Bus Only to Find a Cop on the Other Side…

| |

We guess you could say justice was served in the case of 32-year-old Shena Hardin, of Cleveland, who reportedly had the bad habit of using the sidewalk whenever she saw a school bus to avoid waiting for the children to exit or enter the vehicle.

After seeing the same thing happening over and over again, a Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD) bus driver decided to take matters in his own hands by calling the police to capture the woman red handed.

Sure enough, Hardin appeared with her silver-colored Jeep Compass and jumped on the sidewalk to go around the bus. Only this time, a patrol car was waiting for her just around the corner…

Toni Hardin, the mother of the driver, who was in the passenger seat of the crossover, told Channel 5 News that her daughter was in a rush and it was the first time that she had attempted the move.

"The bus, for some reason, takes an inordinate amount of time talking to the parent or whatever everyday, but he takes forever," Hardin said. "While he's doing all that we're waiting trying to get through. Now this morning, she was late she was trying to get her daughter to school, the reason for going around and going to the side was to give that bus plenty of room."

However, the mother of a handicapped child the bus had stopped to pick up says this is not the first time Hardin had used the sidewalk.

"No she did it all last school year. I was over there February of last year she did it ever since then," said Lucy Kelley who added that nothing had been done about it then. "No, the bus driver didn't do it last year, but I had a new bus driver this year."

The driver of the Jeep was cited for not stopping for the school bus.

The bus driver captured a video of the woman bypassing the vehicle and being nabbed by the cops. You can watch the clip for yourself right after the break.
