this just goes to show you what i have been begging the news agencys to check out.. CDOT isnt getting the job done up there and Rep.Dan Gibbs and everyone else want to blame the truck drivers up there and raise our fines... this is why there has been so many road closeres up there the last 2 years,, CDOT isnt plowing and you have more traffic in 2wd cars spinning out trying to get to the ski slops.. but its always the trucks fault.. never mind were sitting in the long lines with chains on waiting for the cars to get unstuck!!!

It's always easer to blame someone else, that's typical of bureaucracy.
What, you actually expect them to earn their pay?

Companies think it's easier and cheaper to fire someone who's a "whiner" (and I'M NOT saying people with legitimate complaints are whiners) than to fix things. No matter how many times they find out that that isn't true, they never learn. Hopefully it won't take a plow crashing in to an innocent motorist because of mechanical failure to get the point across.

Maybe the article will help.

They cant keep anyone employed up there because no one can afford to live up there. They give out $500 a month for housing and they still cant keep anyone.
