Are Colorado drivers among the most polite in U.S.? Not by a mile
“Colorado drivers among most polite,” July 6 news story.
The Kars4Kids study on the most polite drivers in the U.S. is obviously a flawed and inaccurate survey. The rankings, based on responses from merely 50 drivers per state, placed Colorado as the seventh most courteous. I have been living in metro Denver for four years, and in my opinion Colorado drivers are among the most discourteous drivers I’ve ever dealt with. They have absolutely no clue that the left lane is a passing lane. They sit in the left lane and not only ignore the driver behind them signaling them to please move over, they intentionally slow down and hold up the entire lane. This practice is not only annoying, it is reckless and rude. I experience this on a daily basis. I’ve never seen this behavior in other large cities. New York, which received the least courteous drivers ranking, has drivers who actually know how to drive. Send letters of 150 words or fewer to email@example.com or 101 W.
