That bump in the night -- and in the morning and the evening time, too? It's not your imagination -- it's the poorly-maintained streets that's shaking your car apart.

San Francisco and San Jose have the second- and third-worst streets in the United States, according to a report produced by a transit group.

TRIP, a Washington, D.C.-based organization, rated streets based upon pavement conditions, transportation funding, and economic development, according to the Silicon Valley Business Journal.

And San Francisco and San Jose rated not so great on all of the above.

Bad roads cost San Francisco drivers $782 a year, and $737 a year for San Jose drivers, according to the report.

It's not shaping up to be any better -- federal funding for roads could be eliminated in a year's time, according to the newspaper.
