Reader: Leave left lane on snowy days to faster drivers -- so they can crash into someone else

We had a huge response to our post about the top ten driving tips non-Coloradans forget at the start of their second winter here. Plenty of readers argued that many Colorado natives are bad drivers in the snow, too, while others felt some newcomers are better. There were also comments about omissions, including this one.

This article fails to mention the left hand lane is for passing, if you ain't passing get out of the way. Let the faster drivers drive off and crash away everyone else.
