I'd like an explanation on how a city that is much less dense than Boulder (1,000 fewer people per sq. mile) and has twice the sq. mileage in the city limits as Boulder has worse traffic...that would be the worst city plan in the history of the U.S.

Less density = more spread out.

More spread out = more need to use a car.

More need to use a car = more traffic on the street.

Boulder's traffic is no picnic either, but in Boulder people are much more likely to walk and/or ride their bikes around town. Maybe it's because CSU has more parking spaces than CU does. CSU students are more likely to have a car than CU students are.
