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

Our list of the ten cars whose drivers can be jerks on icy roads generated comments aplenty, with dozens of readers sharing their thoughts about vehicles that we should have included. There were a wide variety of suggestions, but one brand was mentioned more often than any other....

James Dean Estelle writes:

Hands down, the vehicle I see passing me like maniacs and ending up in the ditch the most are Jeep Grand Cherokees! Fun SUVs for sure, but it seems like the drivers are unaware that the road is covered in ice when they pass me doing 10 over in a blizzard. I guess it's a Jeep thing; I wouldn't understand.

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. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
