Idaho Stop explained in video form
My friend Cygnoir commented that she's been nearly run over by "bicyclists who treat stop signs as yield and red lights as stop signs." I like this video because it explains why a proper Idaho-styled stop... well.. it's like a Chicago-stop to me. Personally, I view stop signs and stop lights as an excellent opportunity to make sure that my muscle memory for unclipping is getting built up and I get that extra bit of turning-me-into-one-buff-mofo exercise... but I can see why some folks want a law like this.
