Yesterday was a phenomenal day with virtually no traffic.

Went up to copper on Saturday at 530am, smooth. Left for Denver Sunday at 8pm, smooth. Fuck you idiots driving up there at 8am and going home at 4pm. 70 was a shitshow though even at that time on Saturday. Watching 2wd cars go from a dead stop to sliding into the rail is comedic but Nothing beats the rwd Mercedes though that was stuck before the tunnel in the middle of the road. People, smh

Why? It makes the traffic pretty predictable.

Was behind a CO tagged SUV of some generic, unmemorable variety the other day here on the east coast. They were driving like a dumbass. Made me think of this thread.

Everywhere I've ever lived people have bitched about the way people drive. There are terrible drivers everywhere I've ever been. I don't think it's any worse (or any better) here in CO.

Just saying because they're the ones always bitching. At 4p when I'm sitting at the bar to relax after the day and eat all I heard was people complaining about the drive home. It's just crazy how people drive during those hours and don't expect the absolute worst.

Also every city I've lived in has been way worse than Denver when it comes to driving, and LA never even got snow! It's America, we just love to complain but it's the same everywhere. My only complaint here is the speed. At least in LA you TRY to go as fast as possible. 90mph on the freeway was no issue. Here you get people driving 55 in the fast lane on a daily basis. If you drove 55 in the fast lane on the 405, you'd be dead meat

People are stupid. The traffic is pretty darned predictable. It's fairly easy to avoid the worst of it if you plan around it. If you don't plan around it, then don't bitch. Seems simple, but again, people are stupid.

Oh, I know. I routinely drive the NY/NJ/PA area. Plenty of terrible local drivers. Although I still maintain MA tops the list. Hard to know if they're terrible or just don't-give-a-shit-crazy
