The average driver in the Los Angeles region loses nearly $3,000 annually as a result of driving on roads that are deteriorated, congested, and that lack some desirable safety features, according to a new report from TRIP, a national nonprofit transportation research group based in Washington, DC. Local political, transportation, and economic leaders will join TRIP on Wednesday to highlight the findings and discuss possible solutions.

 

The report, California Transportation by the Numbers: Meeting the State’s Need for Safe, Smooth and Efficient Mobility, examines road and bridge conditions, congestion, economic development, highway safety, and transportation funding in California. The report contains regional data for the San Diego region, Los Angeles-Long Beach-Santa Ana, Sacramento, San Francisco-Oakland, and San Jose, as well as statewide information.
