The average driver in in the Baton Rouge area loses $2,291 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 transportation research nonprofit based in Washington, DC. Local speakers will join TRIP on Tuesday to highlight the report’s findings and discuss possible solutions.
The report, Louisiana 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 the Baton Rouge area and statewide. In addition to statewide data that examines Louisiana’s transportation system as a whole, the TRIP report includes regional data for the Baton Rouge, Lafayette, New Orleans and Shreveport areas.
