no edit summary
The people of the state of '''Idaho''' are extremely friendly and most have no problem [[picking up hitchhikers]]. Be advised however that it It is one of the most conservative states in the [[United States of America|US]] however and in most areas outside of the capital [[Boise]], many people will not pick up anyone who looks at all liberal, like a hippie or a punk. [[User:Zenit|Zenit]] however has only had good experiences, even hitchhiking in rural areas with a head full of dreadlocks. The same rules apply here as anywhere, be nice and courteous no matter how absurd the drivers opinions might be. Beware Be aware that in the North, there is a number of members from the aryan-nations Aryan Nation camps; while they are mostly tucked away in the northwoods you might still run into their members.
== Law ==
 
49-709 PEDESTRIANS SOLICITING RIDES OR BUSINESS.
(1) No person shall stand on a highway for the purpose of soliciting a ride.
Basically, hitchhiking is illegal based on the definition of highway. You CANNOT solicit rides form the shoulder or berm. It would be very hard to defend your position against an officer who claims you are breaking the law by soliciting a ride within the boundary lines of any road property, therefore avoid cops in this state at all costs! The cops in the southern two thirds of the state can be tricky to avoid. The cops in the northern third of the state (highway 12 and all points north) seem not to mind hitchhikers as much. [[User:Zenit|Zenit]] was passed by a state trooper near Moscow, ID, without being hassled at all, while the Orofino city police (Highway 12) politely prohibited him from hitchhiking.
