Is anyone really surprised by this? Colorado roads have been ranked as some of the worst in the entire nation. Whether the conditions of the roads, the lack of lanes on key corridors, or any other number of issues -the problems are obvious, especially to anyone who travels and drives in other States.
Sadly, with the current occupant of the Governor's mansion and the political party that controls that State Legislature, a solution isn't coming any time soon. And even if there was a proposal, we're already at least a decade behind and the State's population continues to grow. In short, just keep practicing sitting in traffic and be prepared for more damage to your car's suspension.
