Losing number

The San Francisco area has the worst roads in the entire country, according to “Bumpy Road Ahead,” a new report on roadways by TRIP, a transportation research group based in Washington, D.C. According to the report, 71 percent of this area’s roads are rated as poor; San Jose was in second place at 64 percent.

TRIP also calculated what it estimates is the added annual cost of operating a vehicle due to road conditions, and the San Francisco-Oakland area once again came in first — or, more accurately, worst — at $1,049; San Jose’s was $983.
