Another indicator of potential need for additional funding relates to the level of car damage that Michigan motorists are experiencing. According to TRIP, Michigan residents in 2002 paid an average $318 per motorist for car repair due to bad roads. These costs totaled $2.2 billion Michigan-wide in 2002. Another indication of the car damage cost issue comes from AAA Michigan. They report that in the first half of 2006 there were 18,000 windshield claims reported to them, and 5,000 pothole damage claims. These claims had an average cost of $641.
