I'm not going to say what law it was, but we here at 104.3 WOW Country recently had to be given a "talking to" from our beloved boys in blue.

We didn't know we were doing anything wrong, and it wasn't what I would call a "big deal" but that doesn't change that it was, in fact, illegal. IHere in the Gem State, ignorance is not bliss when it comes to the law of the land.

This got us thinking. What other laws are there that we aren't aware of.

With the help of OnlyInYourState.com , we dug up a few of Idaho's strangest laws. We're not sure how many of them you are haphazardly breaking, but, good to know.
