The Idaho State Police will be issuing citations to motorists interfering with traffic as they stop to watch migrating bald eagles along Idaho 97.

Motorists have been stopping and blocking traffic, which has prompted the state police to step up traffic patrols and issue citations. Inattentive drivers and cars suddenly stopping have created a serious safety issue on the highway.
