  1. Woodland Park – city of the perpetual red lights! I bet the trooper got tired of stopping at all of the red lights! The only ones that love those lights are the City of Woodland Park!

    1. That’s because the lights are the only things that would make anyone want to stop. Woodland Park, the city that thinks they are a Ski resort town. The only problem is they are not a ski resort town, just another hole-in-the-wall “South Park” styled mountain town.

    1. And there’s no indication that he/she was responding to a call with lights & siren. So it sounds quite straightforward as you stated.

      I’m surprised KRDO hasn’t closed comments on this story yet. It generally only seems to take 1 or 2 comments to do that now… 🙄
