When emerging from alley, driveway or building drivers should always be conscious of other vehicles, pedestrians, bicyclists, children, etc. Drivers are required to stop before the sidewalk when exiting a driveway, building or emerging from alley. By stopping first, the driver will be able to see if it is safe to enter the sidewalk area. Another thing to keep in mind is how fast the cars are traveling on the road you are attempting to enter. Be sure to give yourself plenty of space to get up to speed to avoid a car accident and merge with the flow of traffic safely.
The following is the Idaho Rules of the Road governing emerging from alley, driveway or building are as follows:
Idaho Code § 49-651. EMERGING FROM ALLEY, DRIVEWAY OR BUILDING
The driver of a vehicle emerging from an alley, building, private road or driveway within a business or residential district shall stop the vehicle immediately prior to driving onto a sidewalk or onto the sidewalk area extending across the alley, building entrance, or driveway, or in the event there is no sidewalk area, shall stop at the point nearest the highway to be entered where the driver has a view of approaching traffic.
