Motorists pay a high cost on rough roads

According to a recently published study by TRIP1, 33% of the nation's major urban roads are rated in poor condition. The average motoris in the U.S. is losing $599 annually in additional vehicle operating costs due to poor driving conditions. 

Facts & figures

  • Every $1 of deferred maintenance on roads and bridges costs an additional $4 - $5 in needed future repairs. 
  • Stress on vehicles increases in proportion to the level of pavement roughness accelerating the need of repairs and the pace of vehicle depreciation. 
  • Reconstructing roads costs approximately four times more than resurfacing them.
1TRIP, the nonprofit organization that researches and distributes economic and technical data on transportation issues recently published the national Urban Roads Report. The report highlights the the poor conditions of urban streets and highways, the need for additional funding, and most importantly the need and benefits of proactive pavement preservation.
