This is a good time to learn about Idaho and the 4th Amendment to the US Constitution. A police officer has been endowed with a limited amount of discretion. He is not required to ticket someone for the "reasonable suspicion" reason that he pulled him over for, but he should if he wants... View More

Most states respect other states' laws, as long as judgments were rendered with die process. VA issued you a valid DL for 5 minutes. That's actually a much shorter time than I would have guessed, with high speed computers and other means of transmission. Once VA discovered your DL status... View More

If NO dog was used, try to...

An Idaho attorney would know this best, but your post remains open for two weeks. As a general matter, you could check the signage. As a GENERAL matter, bus lanes sometimes have times during which the restrictions to regular vehicles apply. Good luck

Idaho doesn't have such a statute. An "assault" is the reasonable fear of a "battery." A "battery" is an "unlawful touching." If you touch another person against their will, you may be charged with "battery." If you use an automobile to... View More

Schoolbus-to-RV/Van conversion. ID and IA laws say, "...shall be painted a color other than national school bus glossy yellow...". Does that mean every TRACE of yellow covered, or would it be legal to paint the bulk of the bus, say, blue (e.g., below the windows)? Ref:... View More

As I read the statute you refer to I think it depends on HOW different your paint job looks from the original yellow. Every cop has discretion to or not to make a big deal, not to write a ticket, or to write one and even if you're technically correct, you'll still be sorry if you get a... View More
