Angry about that pothole that just damaged your front end? Or how about getting a good long look at the Conshohocken curve as you inch your way out of the city?
You’re not the only one.
The Washington-based nonprofit research group TRIP (The Road Information Program) just released a report called Future Mobility in Pennsylvania: The Condition, Use and Funding of Pennsylvania’s Roads, Bridges and Transit System. The report attempts to put a dollar value on the cost of poor road conditions in the state.
Some numbers to consider from the report: Philadelphia drivers pay nearly 1.5 billion dollars annually as a result of additional vehicle operating costs, traffic crashes, and congestion related delays because of poor or inefficient road conditions.
