DENVER — It's a common complaint in Colorado: Driver's aren't great. That's why some may not be surprised to see a video of a driver speeding to pass people on the shoulder of a road, but it shook our Denver7 traffic expert.

Jayson Luber, Denver7's traffic guru, captured the video on his dash camera in a work zone on I-25 while driving to work. 

"This was one of the most startling events to happen to me on the road," Luber said after the fact.

Luber said he drove northbound on I-25 through the one-lane construction zone near Arapahoe Road. He said he was surprised to see a set of surprising bright lights approaching behind him in the shoulder of the road.

As the driver approacched, Luber said he swerved to avoid any collision, avoiding the vehicle. A number of other vehicles were passed before the car zooms out of view.

Although a police officer was stationed nearby, Luber said the cop did not pull out to pursue the person. Luber said the vehicle sounded and appeared to be a modified car.

"He put my life and other drivers' life in danger as well as the construction workers who were on the highway just up the road," Luber said.
