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... Read more »
