Readers Share Their Picks for More Dangerous Denver Intersections

We recently shared one site's updated list of Denver's eight most dangerous intersections.

In addition, we invited readers to share info about problematic intersections that weren't included.

Plenty of folks weighed in — and there were more complaints about intersections on Colorado Boulevard than any other street in the city.

Here are several examples of reader-reported issues on Colorado and elsewhere.

Fuck Colorado Blvd from I-70 all the way to Hampden.... Worst street in Denver.

We live off Hampden & I -25 & all the way from Tamerac to Broadway it's hell & from Hampden & Colorado up to Colorado & MLK Blvd it's hell. There needs to be a lot of changes to these entire areas.

6th and Sheridan...dangerous!

I keep wondering when the city will actually add left green lights onto the stoplights at Leetsdale and Forest, and Leetsdale and Holly. It's very dangerous to not have left turn signals on a street that borders the bottom of a hill (aka the border of "South Hilltop"). Accidents seem to happen around there every other week. But knowing Denver's ability to properly finance its city's infrastructural projects, it's likely "there's no room in the city's budget to implement such a safety feature at this time."

Why don't they extend the green arrow lights to a time that properly allows cars to turn. Especially at 17th and Colorado.
