Shena Hardin, age 38, was ticketed by police while the passenger, her mother, defended the action.
Toni Hardin says the bus on East 38th Street between Superior and Payne, which had stopped to pick up a handicapped child, takes too long.
“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.”
Hardin said she drives the street every day with her daughter on their way to work, but denied ever having gone on the sidewalk before.
“Today was the first day she did that and that was a bad move today,” Hardin said.
But a Cleveland Metropolitan School District bus driver had captured video of the Jeep driving on the sidewalk on another day and contacted police, who were waiting Tuesday morning and pulled Hardin over citing her for not stopping for the school bus.
The mother of the handicapped child the bus had stopped to pick up said this has been going on for a long time.
“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. Nothing was done last year though she added. “No, the bus driver didn’t do it last year, but I had a new bus driver this year.”
