Reader: People Moving to Denver Have No Freaking Clue How to Drive Here

A reader recently argued in this space that it's a rare day in Denver when you don't catch drivers doing something stupid.

This assertion won plenty of approval, comment-wise.

As for who's responsible for said stupidity, the prime suspects for those who weighed in were non-natives.

Here's a representative take.

Holly Brett Masone writes:
I've noticed the level of driving stupidity rising in direct correlation with the number of idiots moving here from other places. I don't think the problem is *Denver* drivers. I think it's all the people moving here who have no freaking clue how to drive in our city.
