Have you ever wondered what potholes cost? Now, you can find out.

The Road Information Program (TRIP) compiled its annual report, “Bumpy Roads Ahead: America’s Roughest Rides and Strategies to Make our Roads Smoother.”

In the report, TRIP lists the 20 large cities (regions with at least 500,000 people, including its neighboring or surrounding suburban areas) where motorists pay the most annually in additional vehicle maintenance because of roads in poor conditions.

This is how much potholes cost drivers in each city:

  1. Los Angeles/Long Beach/Santa Ana: $832

  2. Tulsa: $784

  3. San Francisco/Oakland: $782

  4. Oklahoma City: $782

  5. San Diego: $758

  6. San Jose: $737

  7. Tucson: $723

  8. Milwaukee: $700

  9. New Orleans: $687

  10. New York City/Newark: $673

  11. Bridgeport/Stamford: $669

  12. Sacramento: $658

  13. Riverside/San Bernardino: $638

  14. Seattle: $625

  15. Concord, California: $623

  16. Denver/Aurora: $615

  17. Dallas/Fort Worth/Arlington: $615

  18. Birmingham: $601

  19. Honolulu: $598

  20. Colorado Springs: $589

The report also notes that more than a quarter of the nation’s major urban roads are in poor condition. These roads carry an estimated 78 percent of the approximately 2 trillion miles driven annually in urban America.
