Vote Now for Ontario’s Worst Roads.

As winter slowly melts to its frosty end, many of our roads are now beginning to show the lingering effects of the season ­– new and ever-expanding potholes, along with year-long challenges like traffic congestion and road signage issues. Altogether, they can make for a challenging commute, to say the least.

CAA’s annual Worst Roads campaign provides Ontarians a chance to voice their concerns about these costly and dangerous road conditions.

Have Your Say.

Now in its 15th year, CAA’s annual Worst Roads campaign is, once again, asking you to nominate or vote for Ontario roads that you believe are in urgent need of repair. Whether you are a driver, cyclist, transit rider or pedestrian, it’s important that we hear from you.

Ask yourself:

  • Are you faced with mounting car repairs due to hitting potholes?
  • Do you find yourself constantly stuck in traffic on your daily commute?
  • Are you worried about your safety as a cyclist or pedestrian?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you can help by nominating a worst road or voting for one.

Why Your Voice Matters.

We are all road users and we all want safer and more usable roads. Especially here at CAA, it’s the foundation of many of the initiatives we undertake on behalf of our Members and all Ontarians.

This is why we take the results of our Worst Roads campaign and share them with politicians and key industry stakeholders. The information we gather helps governments to understand the challenges road users face in communities and across the province. Importantly, it also reinforces the need for ongoing investment in infrastructure from all levels of government.

Worst Roads Campaign Has Influenced Change!

Repaving and repair work has been done on many of the roads on Ontario’s Worst Roads list, such as Limebank Road in Ottawa, Bunting Road in St. Catharines and Steeles Avenue West in Toronto.

Your road may be next and that’s why we can’t do it without you!

Vote Daily for a Chance to Win.

When you nominate or vote for a road, you’re automatically entered for a shot to win FREE gas for a year and one of 10 prizes valued at $100 CAD!*

Hurry – voting ends April 15, 2018.

Let’s help make Ontario roads better for everyone!
