What is suffering if it can’t be measured? Babies will stop crying if they’re left alone. Scientists have long grappled with a way to objectively measure pain.

So what’s the point of complaining about bad Denver drivers if you can’t prove they are bad?

If your fellow car operators are a source of constant sadness, please console yourself with the knowledge that QuoteWizard took a stab at ranking bad drivers.

Denver came in ninth out of their study of the 75 most populous metro areas. Someone make a bumper sticker.

To figure out we’re the ninth-worst, QuoteWizard sampled accidents, speeding tickets, DUIs and citations data from drivers who used its services. QuoteWizard is a company that provides insurance quotes from a variety of different companies.

The worst city is Sacramento, according to QuoteWizard, so keep that in mind on your way home.
