GARDEN CITY -- A day after thousands of people converged on the Western Idaho Fairgrounds for the Boise Music Festival, Garden City Police are calling their traffic safety plan for the event a great success.

The department said Sunday they responded to five minor traffic collisions around the fairgrounds Saturday. There were no crashes involving pedestrians.

It appears the festival-goers were also on their best behavior - police say there were no arrests as a result of the music festival.

However, according to police, there is still one area for improvement.

Despite our increased efforts to reduce jaywalking, we continue to struggle with violators crossing both Chinden Boulevard and Glenwood streets, Sgt. Blair Brannan said. This year, we installed several temporary signs and increased patrols throughout the event.
