    Denver’s Life-Saving Red Light Cameras Have Caught 16,000-Plus Reckless Motorists this Year

    *Actual number of reckless drivers is lower, coming to a gradual stop less than a foot over the limit line at the west side of Kalamath and 6th where peds aren’t even allowed to cross is not reckless.

      *Actual number of reckless drivers is higher, most unsafe driving actions are not caught by cameras or police officers. Drivers that can’t bother to stop in the proper place even when they know a camera is pointed at them are not likely to drive safely when they aren’t being watched.

    The paucity of new affordable housing even in the suburbs is turning Denver into a city of liberal elites. Interestingly, this is a significant reversal of past economic cycles. In metro Phoenix for example, there were over 11,000 new single family permits pulled in the 1st six months of 2018. There’s also ample affordable housing within the central city. It’s a bit sad for me to see Denver’s DNA change so radically even though I enjoy what is happening in downtown Denver.

    Re: Longmont streets project- “the city hopes to add those features on each section of roadway simultaneously with repaving projects or other roadwork.”

    Amazing concept to coordinate street improvements with resurfacing work. Repaving all of downtown without adding a single bike lane is standard practice for DPW. Sad.
