No one's a perfect driver all the time. 

Owning your flaws and shortcomings isn't the easiest thing to do. Especially when it comes to your unsavory habits and oopsies behind the wheel.

How many people will out-and-out admit to cutting someone off on Eagle Road on their way work that morning? Who goes around broadcasting the stop sign they completely overlooked and blew on Milwaukee?

Experience has taught us it's a pretty small group 🙃

FYI: Idaho enforces 21 pages of road rules

Yikes! Single-space, zero illustrations with minimal formatting in 10-point Courier New—Idaho lawmakers sure did cram a lot of information in Chapter 6: Rules of the Road.

And that's a-okay. No one, not even Idaho law enforcement, expects us to memorize every road rule on the books. That said, any driver with an ounce of common sense knows they need to have the basics memorized.



Idaho Road Rules: 101


It doesn't matter if it's Idaho or California, every driver needs to know the when, where, why, and how of state and local driving laws. In Boise, for example, it's legal to turn left on a red arrow, whereas in California it's not. Likewise, cyclists are permitted to roll through stop signs in Idaho but not in California.

Stop! In the name of Idaho road rules 😉

Speaking of stopping, do you think you remember each and every scenario that calls for Idaho drivers to stop their cars? If you do, good for you! We, on the other hand, needed a little refresher course after a near-accident at a railway crossing in Caldwell.

If you could use a quick reminder yourself, check out the gallery below.
