Defining Cycling Regulations: A Boise Court Case And What It Means For The "Idaho Stop"
In Idaho, cyclists are allowed to treat a red light like a stop sign. A rider must fully stop and then proceed only when safe to do so. In July a car struck a bicycle leaving the cyclist in the hospital, but last week an Idaho magistrate judge ruled against the cyclist. The cyclist must pay a $90 fine for causing the accident. Her attorney is appealing the ruling, saying the wrong law was applied. Idaho Matters talks to her attorney along with a Concordia Law professor about the laws at play here and how they apply to the road.
