from. national transportation research group trip released to findings on the driving conditions here in las vegas. in it it reads across the state $3.2 billion are spent by nevada drivers as a whole every single year. broken down, that number equates to over $1,700 annually per driver. and the report goes on to pinpoint safety conditions as traffic as the main reason. the numbers are obviously high. it's important to know that most drivers are not spending just repairs. so to back up the findings trip says the largest portion of that amount, about $1,000, is actually cal caw lateed from the cost of time local drivers spent while waiting in traffic every single year and that is total of about 46 hours. when it comes to the roads driving conditions, trip pulled a stat from the federal highway administration turned over by n-dot on the smoothness of local
poor or mediocre condition. one of every three miles is beat up and it's giving your car a rough ride and that's what contributes to the higher vehicle operating cost. >> kyndell: so we've broken down the numbers in terms of costs. but another eyebrows raiser from the report is the number of deadly crashes right here in nevada. the state-wide average is actually higher than the national number. i can tell you that that number was even non-interstate and rural roads. moving forward i can tell you that pinpointing areas of construction like right here in the northwest the main focus of county and also the city workers here and we'll stay on top of it and bring you the latest. kyndell nunley, back to you two. >> michelle: a lot of people waiting for that project to be done so there's a flyover to get on the 95 from the 215. speaking of construction, projects are popping up around the valley. you probably noticed.
