Another motorist drives on sidewalk to pass buses


BROADVIEW HEIGHTS, Ohio — A second Cleveland-area motorist has been cited by police for driving on a sidewalk to pass stopped school buses, Fox 8 reports.

The first case involved Shena Hardin, whose bus-passing violation and subsequent punishment were well publicized.

The second case involves Nancy Yachanin, who committed a similar violation at Broadview Heights Middle School on Nov. 15, according to Fox 8.

Investigators say that Yachanin pulled into a parking spot in front of the school to pick up her daughter, and when her SUV was blocked in by a line of school buses, she drove down a sidewalk to get around them.

One of the drivers took down Yachanin’s license plate number and when police contacted her, she admitted what she had done and was cited for careless operation in willful disregard for public safety.

WHAT IN THE WORLD ARE THESE PEOPLE THINKING!!!! Hopefully this driver does the same as the other lady. Are they considering the possible consequences if they injure of kill someone? HOW DANGEROUS

Enough is enough with stupid people. NO ONE should OWN a vehicle PERIOD if they ever are driving on the sidewalks. There should be a Federal law that allows anyone to have all of their vehicles seized and their drivers license revoked - if not lost for life - should they intend to drive upon side walks. Grow some gonads and do something with these stupid people violating traffic laws. It is a privilege to drive - NOT a Right - can't stay off the side walks then stay out of vehicles if you can't drive with some common sense.
