In a recent announcement, the Canadian Automobile Association South Central Ontario (CAASCA) has launched its yearly "Worst Roads" campaign, which allows motorists throughout the region to vote for local roads that are in dire need of repair.
The campaign not only helps the CAA to promote safer driving to motorists in the region, but also allows drivers to provide current information which will be shared by the CAA to city officials who can then direct road crews to repair the most dangerous roads.
With hundred of thousands of potholes repaired throughout Ontario in the past year which were largely attributed to the unusually cold winter this year this is a pressing issue for many motorists.
In a statement from Faye Lyons of the CAA:
"That is why we are calling on all users across Ontario to participate in CAA's Worst Roads campaign, and tell us what roads and highways are in desperate need of repair.... With significant impacts to our roads after this winter, the cost of fixing roads and bridges for municipalities is likely to soar,"
To vote for your worst road, simply click "here" to be directed to the CAA website.
For those interested, last years "winner" was Dufferin Street in Toronto!
