Idaho Code § 49-639. TURNING OUT OF SLOW MOVING VEHICLES
On a two-lane highway outside an urban area where passing is unsafe due to oncoming traffic or other conditions, the driver of a vehicle traveling slower than the normal speed of traffic and behind which three (3) or more vehicles are formed in line, shall turn off the roadway at the nearest place designated as a turnout or wherever sufficient area for a safe turnout exists, in order to permit the following vehicles to pass.
Fatal Car Accidents on Rural Roads
The rural roads of Idaho often have slow moving vehicles. Though rural roads may seem safer than urban streets due to less traffic, it is actually the opposite. In 2013, nearly 3,000 more fatal car accidents occurred on rural roads vs on busy urban streets according to statistics shown by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The next time you are driving behind a slow moving vehicle on an urban road, check twice before attempting to pass.
