Hours per year stuck in traffic
In vehicle repairs per motorist
Average family cost each year
The truth is that American families and businesses are already paying for inadequate infrastructure in wasted hours on traffic and money on gas.
The average American commuter spends 38 hours a year stuck in traffic!
- Driving on roads in need of repair costs U.S. motorists $109 billion a year in extra vehicle repairs and operating costs – $516 per motorist.
- ASCE estimates that deficient, unreliable surface transportation infrastructure will cost the average American family over $1,060 each year through 2020.
The longer that Congress takes to fix the HTF, the more American families will pay for our inadequate infrastructure.
