Of course, one of the things for which Colorado is most well-known is its amazing and world-famous ski resorts which are made possible by the especially snowy winters.

Colorado Drivers Avoid Certain Transplant Drivers

If you're from Colorado or have lived here for at least a few years, you likely know the stigma that is associated with drivers from certain other states. It's no secret that Coloradans are the most uncomfortable around California drivers, with a vehicle sporting Texas license plates a close second.

In addition to these drivers, there are plenty of other stereotypes that exist in Colorado when it comes to motorists. Whether it be the 'Super Mom," the "Pretend Rancher," or the "I'm Obviously Breaking Laws" drivers, we've all seen them and have interacted with them on the roads at least a few times.
