Use crosswalks and walk with the light
The most direct route for ITD employees crossing
State Street may be a straight line, but it's also the most
dangerous. Boise City Police recently relayed a motorist's
complaint about ITD employees who cross against the traffic
control lights at the crosswalks and those who do not use
crosswalks. Police ask ITD workers to comply with crossing
signals so direct patrols and citations won't be necessary.
