This is where I draw the line. Thanks for reminding me I will complain to my public officials, like that will help LOL. That was one of the things I didn't miss about leaving CA.

Right because Pedro's ride is well maintained and safe on the road

And yes I drive slower than the socco moms on my block. It's funny seeing the front end of a Honda minivan catch a little air as she guns it over the speed bump. Remember respect the van

I drive slower than many mom's also. They go about ruining their vehicles and causing crashes as they distract themselves from their primary job. Hint: Any person operating a 2000+ pound motor vehicle has only one primary job--getting that vehicle from point A to point B without harming anyone.

Some good points being made about this causing an influx of people that may register to vote without eligibility and demand more "public" services.

In their defense, it is hard to make sandwiches while driving.

I've been surprised and disappointed how Colorado seems to be losing it's character and traditional priorities.

For those who have left the state, please list the top five issues that have caused you to leave. I'm interested in hearing more about the trends and changes for the worse. It's not about bellyaching, but more about getting a better understanding (even if just opinion).

Agreed that's what happened to Califorunication when I lived there. And once they have licenses they can legally drive into other states lovely.

Ridiculous. hickenpooper is a total nutcase.

It's another scam to get foreign citizens on the voting and welfare roles.

To me it is insane to grant drivers licenses to people here ILLEGALLY!

Glad to be out of Colorado.

Well, MY insurance hasn't gone up. Mr. Rabbit needs to look into finding a new insurance company that won't rip him off by quadrupling his premiums. That's absurd, and I wouldn't stand for it, myself. I also don't notice any big flood of Hispanics suddenly arriving in town either. We still are our same old population mix of Utes, Navajo's and rednecks. I love Colorado and some stupid law about giving illegals driver's licenses isn't going to scare me off from my home. You guys need to cowboy up and quit with the whining, already. Jeez.

Yes, that would be clearly discriminatory.

It's oddly having the opposite effect on me. I want to move there so I can vote those wackos out of office.
