I am a Colo Native, and have lived in other cities in Colorado, been living here in Co Spgs for 35 years, and this place has his the bottom low trashy place to live, it was once a nice and decent place and I'm not sure what caused all these wild people to move here, maybe it was the lure for legal marijuana- as now there is a marijuana dispensary on almost every block it is very excessive, then the drivers are like zombies who are out to kill you, I get cussed out and flipped out multiple times a day because I am not speeding or tailgating or racing to the next red light, I have been crashed into 3 times this year by these zombie people. The pay and cost of living is ridiculously out of range with the housing and affordability. The homeless situation is so bad the police are asking for ideas from the community on what they can do with all of them on every single corner begging for money. The racism is very strong and every race seems to hate the other. The schools are terrible and way below national school grades. The military are all returning and have PTSD they drive like they are still on the war zone out to kill other drivers with their big trucks and raised up with large tires-there are 5 military bases here. I pray I can move out of this city very soon and do not like it here at all. I have a great boss and have been working medical collections for 20 years and love what I do but this city is so bad it will ruin anyone from wanting to live here. Oh, and the city planning and excessive construction on every street is like playing the video game frogger and try not to blow out your alignment and axle , and don't even think of trying to merge over into the next lane due to to construction blocking lanes-because drivers wont let you in-even if you use your signal, and then they'll honk and cuss you out.
