First real snow this season and drivers....

As we all know, we got the first decent(laughable still) snow this season. Today, the street in front of my place is snowpacked, it will likely melt before the plow crews get to it. As I'm in the spare bedroom packing to move soon, I hear an engine rev, that sound you hear when someone is stuck. I look out and see some guy in a white cherokee, complete with FNjeep stickers on it, nose first on the curb, back tires ablazing. A couple of people go and help push him and after keeping it on the rev limiter long enough, he gets free. In that span of a few minutes he nearly hit several cars going by. No one was paying any attention obviously,lol. Once free, it quickly becomes apparent why he spun out on a straight road, he has it floored, spinning away as he took off. Going to guess he blew out the 4wd during a past event since he never used it, and judging by his driving skills, I can see why. Its colorado, it snows(sometimes), people need to learn how to drive in it.

My first winter here and I saw a lot of people giving plenty of space, slowing down waaay before the stop sign or red light; I was quite surprised at how well people were driving here in the snow. Now, with NO snow on the ground? People drive like idiots out here, cutting you off, pulling out in front of you, riding your bumper in a 45 mph zone, etc. (I live on the north side, by the AF academy)

Common sense is surprisingly, not that common.

Im towards the north side, near union and academy. Alot of people took it easy today, and drove smartly, but alot were brain dead, drove around with no lights on, especially white vehicles no less! Then there were a few that were just brain dead, sliding into curbs for no apparent reason, and thinking you drive with your foot to the floor. Should have shot a video of this guy,lol.

I'm new to Colorado; moved here mid-October. Having come from Iowa, I'm certainly not new to snow driving. Was up wheeling Red Elephant Hill and Bill Moore Lake near Idaho Springs on Saturday when it started snowing. Was wondering what my drive down I-70 toward Denver would be like and was impressed that people were driving fairly appropriately for the weather, going about 25-30mph most of the way down. Snow was really coming down and roads were slick. Now, once I hit Denver and the snow stopped, people resumed driving like jackholes...

Well this morning's snow surprised everybody I think since the roads weren't plowed at all this morning. Almost had to put her in 4wd for a second but she ended up grabbing afterall. So far this winter has been quite pathetic here in the Denver area but I have to say everybody seemed to be taking it pretty easy this morning except for one dummy that just about side swiped me.
