In Idaho it is a misdemeanor for any pedestrian who is under the influence of alcohol or drugs to walk on any road or highway if in doing so the person would present a hazard to himself, herself or others. Those who are under the influence are required to stay on the sidewalk.
In Boise and other several other Idaho cities, the city code makes it a misdemeanor for a pedestrian under the influence to be found anywhere in public if their level of intoxication would present a hazard.
Although many think this is minor offense, it should be taken seriously! The punishment for a conviction carries up to six (6) months in jail and up to a one-thousand dollar ($1000.00) fine. Beyond just the punishment imposed by the court, alcohol and drug related crimes can have serious consequences in terms of employment.
