The average driver in the Las Vegas region loses more than $1,700 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 Tuesday to highlight the findings and discuss possible solutions.

 

The report, Nevada 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 Nevada. The report contains regional data for the Las Vegas and Reno/Tahoe urban areas, as well as statewide information.
