And no other CO city in the top 50? Maybe potholes weren't taken into account.

Um, Denver is ranked 40. I don't believe these rankings. Denver & CO Springs are heavily populated with few amount of highways.

I wish we used high speed rail and buses instead of cars.

Lol yeah, the potholes are pretty ridiculous. Tucson at #5? Wow. I didn't like driving there either. I'd put ABQ and Columbus way above them. Baltimore isn't bad to drive in, aside from sports traffic. Philadelphia is terrible to drive in.

Co. Springs is populated, but ranking an empty city high doesn't do anyone any good. The list would need to only include cities otherwise empty stretches of freeway would win all the top honors. Aside from the potholes, driving around in Co. Springs is extremely fast. We rarely have that crappy bumper to bumper traffic. I'll grant many people drive like morons and tailgate / slam on breaks to avoid hitting the guy they were tailing. I wouldn't consider us top 10 for talent or intelligence behind the wheel, but despite the potholes our road system is actually built out enough to allow people to move from point A to point B without having the entire evening ruined by sitting in traffic.
