Poor roads costing Oklahoma drivers almost $800 a year in car care | News
Tulsa fairs worse, costing commuters an annual amount of $784, the second highest amount in the nation.
These costs are the expected amount drivers spend to maintain their vehicles because of the road conditions.
Out of the United States, Oklahoma City and Tulsa rank 10 and 11 for poor road conditions for urban areas.
“With state and local governments struggling to fund needed road repairs and with federal surface transportation funding set to be slashed next year, road conditions are projected to get even worse,” Will Wilkins said, TRIP’s executive director.
Wilkins suggests that Congress could help offset these costs by giving more funding to support transportation programs.
