CLEVELAND – A Cleveland Metropolitan School District bus driver captured video of a motorist driving on the sidewalk to avoid stopping for the bus loading and unloading children.
The driver was caught on cell phone camera Tuesday morning. Cleveland Police are not releasing the driver’s name, but say it is a female motorist. They said she was not arrested, but cited for driving on a sidewalk and not stopping for a school bus.
CMSD driver Uriah Herron is credited by supervisors for his quick thinking to nab the driver on camera. The driver’s sidewalk detours appear to be a daily occurrence. “We had a very conscientious driver for 30 years. He really cares about his children and he took the extra step that this doesn’t happen again,” said CMSD Bus Manager Eric Taylor.
The incident happened at East 38th Street between Superior and Payne Avenue.
There is no information about the driver or possible charges at this time.
