Drivers are dealing with very bad roads in Illinois. A study conducted by TRIP shows the state’s crumbling and congested roads are costing motorists more than 18-billion dollars a year in damaged vehicles and wasted time. The findings were released yesterday as part of an ongoing effort by various interest groups pressing for a new capital bill for the state. The Illinois Chamber of Commerce supports a 25-cents-per-gallon increase in the state gasoline tax to pay for transportation projects.
