Embarrassing the 'idiots'

When is embarrassment a punishment that fits a crime?
In Cleveland, it's when you drive on a sidewalk to get around a stopped school bus.
Shena Hardin, 32, will have to wear a sign for an hour a day that says "Only an idiot would drive on the sidewalk to avoid the school bus."
She was sentenced on Monday. The bus driver took footage of the incident, which left little question that she was guilty. It did, however, leave the question of why only an hour a day?
Probably only an hour because they want her to be out during prime busing time, I'd imagine.
It looks to me like she may have been yakking on her cell phone too. Nice.
