Bad Roads Cost San Diegans More Than $1900 Annually

Driving on San Diego area roads that are deteriorated, congested and that lack some desirable safety features costs the average driver $1,941 annually. 

The money is due to additional vehicle operating costs (VOC) as a result of driving on rough roads, the cost of lost time and wasted fuel due to congestion, and the financial cost of traffic crashes. 

California drivers lose a total of $61 billion each year as a result of driving on deficient roads.
