Traffic Costs

Yearly traffic costs in Massachusetts are about $15.7 billion:

  • $6.7 billion per year sent of foreign gasoline (link) ($2.40 per gallon).
  • $6.0 billion per year on accidents (link).
  • $3.0 billion per year spent on congestion (link).

Implementing S.1993 would allow innovations to convert at least $8 billion per year into jobs building sustainable networks, customer savings of a car payment per month, and profits from converting congestion, pollution, and injuries into value.
