Do Colorado drivers suck? With today's icy weather, you won't have to be on the streets for long in other to make your determination. Or you can just stay inside where it's nice and warm, and consider this comment:
I will be the first to admit that CO drivers suck. We are rude; we absolutely do not follow any rules of the road that would require us to be polite. We tend to aim for anything in a crosswalk, because "points"...duh. we enjoy wet roads because we can splash the pedestrians walking near any puddles. Also "points." And when it comes to driving on cold, icy roads, we think we are better than anyone else out there.
Let's be honest here, fellow Coloradans...we are probably some of the most arrogant, asshole drivers. I didn't believe it until I traveled to other places. In MA, drivers will stop if they just think you want to cross a street. In WI, four-way stops become a parking lot because they are willing to let someone else go first... all four people at the stop. On a highway, once you cross the CO state line, people actually use the lanes like they're supposed to. You know, left lane is for passing, right lane is where you go once you've passed. They actually allow people to merge, rather than speed up/slow down to keep them from taking the lane.
CO drivers really do just suck. And since I learned to drive here, that would include me.... at least until I learned better.
