The judge is overreaching its authority.

Might as well cane her publicly as well.

Too light.

Someone like that should permanently lose the right privilege to drive. Not so much over the specific violation at hand but over the sense of entitlement and general stupidity that it takes to pull that crap.

You all sure do speak easily of taking away other peoples rights over stupid decisions.

People often forget the unusual part of cruel and unusual punishment. The judge has no authority to do this.

It's kind of borderline for me... I see the Judge's reason for doing it, but it's a slippery slope from making a woman hold a sign for an hour a day, to much more ridiculous and unconstitutional punishments.

A hefty fine and maybe license suspension would have had probably more effect on her. The sign thing is just an embarrassment... it is a slight deterrent for others, but only slight.

First off its not a right, its a privilege.

Secondly someone who drives with such little regard for the laws governing the operation of a motor vehicle is a danger to themselves and more importantly anyone else on or near the road.

It's not like she passed a bus at a bus stop...single instance. She repeatedly did this. PASSING on a sidewalk. She should lose her driving priveleges for longer than 30 days. Year maybe? This was over and above the normal "mistake".
