"The Thornton clown-show where they sit on the footbridge above I-25 and end up slowing everything down both ways during rush hours."

Number 1: East 23rd Avenue near the Denver Zoo

"There's a little niche just past the zoo -- motorcycle cops hang there all the time. It's like a factory for small speed overage tickets -- tons of mommy vans are stopped there -- big Denver money maker."

The Cherry Creek area is bad. University Blvd northbound between Exposition and Cherry Creek Dr. N Cops there all the time - Of course the van parked on Speer by the country club ever day but the cops will also stand on the corner of 1st and University and get you for going even a couple miles over.

Alameda is bad right near Steele Elementary. Of course, people should be very respectful of school zones, but the motorcycle cop who posts there (typically the same guy, and typically at S. Marion and Alameda), gives out tickets like candy: He has somebody pulled over every single time I drive past or go to that Starbucks for coffee in the morning. To make matters worse, he has a habit of driving on the sidewalk after ticketing people at Alameda and Downing back to his post. The Denver PD doesn't like being challenged on that:
