Reader: Denver's drivers are the worst in the country

A Comment of the Day post involving our report about the first of two recent fatal crashes involving elderly drivers (this one centering on Ken Hosch, 83), turned the conversation in an interesting direction. Some readers took on texting behind the wheel, while this one ripped Denver drivers in general.

Yes. Especially in Denver. Worst drivers in the country. I'd rather be driving in Florida with all the elderly drivers any day.
