March 30/12 14:12 pm - CAA Launches 'Worst Roads' Campaign


Posted by Editoress on 03/30/12
 

You are driving along, minding your own business when all of a sudden you hit a pothole. Before you know it you are hit in the pocketbook with hefty repair costs to your vehicle. Damage caused by crumbling pavement or traffic congestion can mean repair bills ranging from $60 - $3,000.

Today, CAA South Central Ontario (CAA SCO) launched the 9th 'Worst Roads' campaign.

"We want to know the worst road you have driven on in Ontario. Whether the issue is congestion, potholes, road signs, traffic lights or pedestrian and cycling safety, we want to hear from you," said John Ennis, Government Relations Specialist, CAA SCO. "Your votes make a difference."

"Over the years, CAA's Worst Roads campaign has been successful in creating awareness about the importance of our infrastructure to the Ontario economy, public safety and our quality of life," said Rob Bradford, Executive Director, Ontario Road Builders' Association. "When the public speaks, governments listen and the Worst Roads campaign provides a way for the public to make its concerns known about our growing infrastructure debt."

Cast your ballots for the worst roads in Ontario at www.worstroads.ca until April 24th. Nominate as many roads as you like, but you cannot vote for the same road twice.

Meanwhile, due to the tremendous success of the initiative here in Ontario, the Worst Roads campaign is also being rolled out in British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.
