CAA is searching for the worst roads in various regions across Canada.

By Mike Davey

Hamilton, Ontario -- April 6, 2016 -- CAA has kicked off its annual Worst Roads campaign, asking drivers, pedestrians, cyclists and transit riders to identify the roads in Canada most in need of improvement.

What makes a "worst road" could be virtually anything: potholes, congestion, safety concerns, insufficenty signage or a simple lack of maintenance. Any or all of these can make traversing the road more difficult and carries the potential for accidents.  

You can nominate a road for this dubious honour as many times as you like, but rules forbid voting for the same road more than once.

Many people have already started casting their votes. The campaign started Wednesday in Ontario and Quebec, but it has been running in Manitoba since early March. Voting opens in Saskatchewan on April 8.

The list below shows the "leaders" in each region at time of publication:

Atlantic
Gillis Point Road in Gillis Point, Nova Scotia and Gillis Point East Road in Washabuck Centre, Nova Scotia are currently tied for first place.

Quebec
Chemin Traverse de Laval, Sainte-Brigitte-de-Laval,

Ontario, South Central
Scarlett Road, Toronto

Ontario, North and East
Carling Avenue, Ottawa

Ontario, Niagara
Drummond Road, Niagara Falls

Manitoba
Main Street South, Carman
