Idaho Code § 49-1401
Any person who drives or is in actual physical control of any vehicle upon a highway, or upon public or private property open to public use, carelessly and heedlessly or without due caution and circumspection, and at a speed or in a manner as to endanger or be likely to endanger any person or property, or who passes when there is a line in his lane indicating a sight distance restriction, shall be guilty of reckless driving.
Inattentive driving is considered a lesser offense to reckless driving. It applies where the vehicle operator has been inattentive, careless or imprudent, in light of the circumstances then existing, rather than heedless or wanton, or in those cases where the danger to persons or property by the motor vehicle operator’s conduct is slight. A person convicted of inattentive driving is guilty of a misdemeanor and may be sentenced to jail for not more than ninety (90) days, be fined not more than three hundred dollars ($300), or both. There is no license suspension for this offense and no requirement of SR22 insurance if convicted.
