GOOD MONEY AFTER BAD:

Bad roads cost California drivers $13.9 billion annually, report says ( Ronald D. White, March 25, 2013, LA Times)

The woeful condition of California's road surfaces is 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). [...]

Barrineau said that the $13.9 billion represented 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.
