An American woman caught on camera driving on the footpath to avoid a school bus that was unloading children will have to stand at an intersection wearing a sign warning about idiots.

Court records show a Cleveland Municipal Court judge ordered 32-year-old Shena Hardin to stand at an intersection for two days next week.

She will have to wear a sign saying: "Only an idiot drives on the sidewalk to avoid a school bus."

The judge ordered her to wear the sign from 7.45am to 8.45am both days.

Hardin's license was suspended for 30 days and she was ordered to pay US$250 in court costs.

Messages seeking comment were left at a telephone listing for Hardin and at her attorney's office.
