Have you blown out a tire, broke an axle or lost a wheel?
One thing is for certain. you are not alone.
Michigan roads are among the worst in the country, thanks to chronic underfunding and neglect from Republicans in the State Legislature. The poor state of our roads costs Michigan drivers hundreds — and even thousands of dollars — in repairs per vehicle every year. And it hurts our state's economy and long-term growth.
- Every year, our bad roads cost Michigan $5 billion. That's $700 per driver.
- Michigan roads got a D- in 2018 from the American Society of Civil Engineers.
- Michigan has 1,047 traffic fatalities in 2016.
- 20% of state roads are in poor condition.
- By 2020, 40% of state roads will be in poor condition.
- 11% of our bridges are structurally deficient.
- The number of bridges in poor condition will increase by 50% by 2023.
