Toronto, Ontario -- April 10, 2017 -- Voting is now open for the annual CAA Worst Roads campaign. Canadians throughout Ontario, Quebec, Saskatchewan and Atlantic Canada are invited to vote for the roads most in need of attention in their city or town.
"From congestion, potholes and the timing of traffic lights to pedestrian and cycling safety, everyone is affected by the quality of our roadways," said Raymond Chan, Government Relations, CAA South Central Ontario (SCO). "This is an opportunity to have your voice heard."
The CAA Worst Roads campaign is a platform to make roads safer by helping municipal and provincial governments understand what roadway improvements are important to citizens and where they need to be made. Roadways can be nominated for reasons such as potholes, deteriorating pavement, poor or non-existent cycling or walking infrastructure or poor roadsigns.
Votes for CAA's Worst Roads can be cast at caaworstroads.com until May 1st. Once voting is closed, CAA will compile a list of the Top 10 Worst Roads in each region. The lists will help shine a light on the state of local roads in numerous municipalities. CAA will present the list of 2017 Worst Roads to local and provincial officials to help inform future funding and planning decisions.
Participants will be entered weekly into prize draws, concluding with a grand prize draw to win free gas for a year.
