The average driver in the Montgomery region loses nearly $1,300 annually as a result of driving on roads that are deteriorated, congested, and that lack some desirable safety features, according to a new report from TRIP, a national nonprofit transportation research group based in Washington, DC. Local speakers will join TRIP on Wednesday to highlight the findings and discuss possible solutions.

 

The report, Alabama Transportation by the Numbers: Meeting the State’s Need for Safe, Smooth and Efficient Mobility, examines road and bridge conditions, congestion, economic development, highway safety, and transportation funding in Alabama. The report contains regional data for the Birmingham, Huntsville, Mobile and Montgomery urban areas, as well as statewide information.
