Roads and bridges that are deficient, congested or lack desirable safety features cost California motorists a total of $44 billion statewide annually – nearly $2,500 per driver in the Los Angeles urban area – due to higher vehicle operating costs, traffic crashes and congestion-related delays. Increased investment in transportation improvements at the local, state and federal levels could relieve traffic congestion, improve road and bridge conditions, boost safety, and support long-term economic growth in California, according to a new report released by TRIP, a Washington, D.C.-based national transportation organization.
