Narrow, two-lane highways through Idaho provide hazards for motorists and motorcyclists utilizing these backroads. Fast-moving traffic can travel at close proximity to other vehicles heading the opposite direction with little more than yellow lines providing a divider.
A mistake in the lane can send one vehicle into another to cause a devastating crash. Victims can suffer severe injuries and have long journeys to the hospital to receive the treatment they need.
