Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

In a recent Denver Blogs post, we featured a Bree Davies item about navigating the Sixth Avenue death trap and other Denver traffic hazards.

The topic definitely struck a chord.

Plenty of commenters weighed in with their picks for the most problematic areas in the metro area right now.

As for this reader, he has a more general piece of advice for folks not accustomed to high-intensity city driving.

Mark Bromley writes:

In Denver one, must be an expert driver between the hours of 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. If you are not an expert driver and used to city driving, don't take your car to Denver.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
