CALIFORNIA- The woeful condition of California's streets and highways are costing drivers $13.9 billion a year in repairs and operating costs, according to a new report by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE).
The ASCE, said that the $13.9 billion figure came from an analysis done by TRIP, a national transportation research group.
The $13.9 billion represents what the state's drivers were paying for repairs and operation costs that they would not have incurred if they were driving on roads in good condition.
The cost works out to an average of $586 per driver, the report said.
The report assessed the state of the nation's infrastructure in all 50 states, including road and bridge conditions.
