TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - A new AAA survey shows New Jersey drivers have a worsening view of the state’s road and bridge conditions, and Democratic legislative leaders say the report highlights the need to shore up a key transportation fund.

AAA Northeast said Monday 45 percent of New Jersey drivers say their commutes have become worse recently, up from 37 percent in 2013.

Senate President Steve Sweeney and Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg say the results underscore the need for a plan to deal with the transportation trust fund, which they say is on pace to go broke later this year.

Sweeney and Weinberg have called for a $2 billion fund, but have not put forward a way to finance it.

The survey, conducted every two years, questioned New Jersey 600 drivers about their commutes.
