Fuck if I know what they do in Denver for tires. I live where studs are recommended and snow is on the ground 9 months of the year.

My wife's car has studded tires year round because of this. Sucks to be on the passes going to the grocery store, a hike or Woodward and get caught in a storm with the regular tires on. My truck just Keeps non studded snows all year.

I seriously have a friend that runs studs on his tires year round and when we get the short break in the weather he either buses it or just rides his motorcycle.

Not even close bro, I already own a buttload of desert property on the border of Az and Ca so when the big one hits, I'll have beach front property first.

it's actually CDOT, not Denver... I work sometimes with traffic engineers. They have their reasons. But traffic sucks anyway you slice it. There are wayyy too many people.

I think CO just needs to close its borders to new residents, be them legal citizens or other, until they can get their infrastructure in order. The current infrastructure can't support the number of cars on the road now, and the Denver metro area's legal citizen population is expected to grow by 10% in the next 5 years. That's not even factoring in all the illegals that will make their way here in that time. Add to that the fact that the fucktards in office decided to start issuing illegal immigrant driver licenses and the traffic in CO is going to get a whole worse.

Well that's part of it, what really needs to happen is for NYS and a few other states to legalize weed so people flock there after the cash cow that is marijuana and not here. At least summit can support the influx of people right now as we've lost probably 50% of our mountain population in the last 6 months.

This is just absolutely fucking mind boggling. Then, the illegals started protesting because the DMV was too crowded for them to get their licenses in a timely manner. WTF???

Oh here come to our country, get rights, complain because we can't squeeze all you illegal fucks through in a timely fashion. News flash people there's more than one DMV drive somewhere else and get it.
