An Indiana judge fed up with teenage traffic violators is hitting them where it hurts — in the driver's seat.

    1. C'mon — what's not to like?

      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

Porter Superior Judge Julia Jent is sentencing the teens to the embarrassment of riding the school bus.

Jent got the idea after a girl in her court for a moving traffic violation appeared not to take seriously either the offense or the possible fine.

The judge said she knew she had reached the teen when she ordered her to park her car and ride the school bus and the girl started crying outside her courtroom.

Teens not complying will be fined and have their licenses suspended.

Jent also warns parents they could be held in contempt of court if they drive their child to school.
