Do you ever cringe when you think about what fresh hell might present itself on your drive home from work?

If you haven't, consider yourself lucky. It's a daily occurrence for us 😳 

If you've ever suffered through the agony of Treasure Valley traffic, you know our drivers are in a league of their own. From busting u-turns over medians to tailgating ambulances in a bogus attempt to jump traffic, more Boise locals are driving by their own road rules. And it's not good. 

After all, why obey the entirety of the law when you can cherry-pick the aspects that are most convenient for you?

Scroll on for a look at Boise's most blown-off traffic laws.

So, what makes someone a good Boise driver?

We thought you'd never ask😉 As it turns out, it's nothing extraordinary.

Better Boise drivers tend to give themselves a 20-minute cushion on their routes from point A to point B. Or, they avoid the chaos of Eagle Road that's jammed five days a week all year long so they're not speeding and weaving like @$$holes to get to a nail appointment.

They might also skip the I84 a.m. traffic report because they know it's been jammed between Ten Mile and Eagle for the last 10 years. In short, they're paying attention, planning ahead, and driving by Boise's rules, not their own.  

There's no such thing as a perfect driver.

To be fair, even the most responsible Boise drivers experience an occasional faux pas behind the wheel. But what sets top-notch drivers apart from the speed-racers comes down to consideration. 

Before they're even in drive, decent drivers are accounting for the never-ending convoys of school bus traffic on their route and the takes-forever-to-bang-a-left-turn and baby-on-board crowds.

They might be white-knuckling their way through it, but they exercise grace when they're stuck behind seniors cruising 15-to-20 miles under the speed limit. They're not perfect, they're just decent humans inside and outside of their car. 

Since we're on the subject, have you heard of Idaho's speeding loophole? It's another forgotten road rule that happens to be pretty nifty. Scroll on for a look.
