What’s Your Worst Road? CAA Atlantic Campaign Update

Saint John, NB – On March 25, CAA Atlantic launched the fourth annual Worst Roads campaign for Atlantic Canada. To date more than 2,600 Atlantic Canadians have cast a vote for a Worst Road. The campaign is running through to April 25, 2014.

CAA Members as well as non-Members, drivers and non-drivers from across Atlantic Canada, are invited to have a say and submit a vote for their Worst Road at www.atlantic.caa.ca/worstroads.

To date, the top ten, leading Worst Roads in the region are:

At the close of the campaign on April 25, 2014, the results will be tabulated. A top list of Atlantic Canada’s Worst Roads will be published featuring the most voted for roads in the region.

A Worst Road qualifies as a “worst” if it is in disrepair with potholes, fissures, cracks, and even sinkholes. They could also include poorly designed roads or ones that are too narrow for motorists, pedestrians and cyclists to share safely.

Roads and driving safety is a priority for CAA Atlantic. Poor road conditions affect us all through increased vehicle repair costs, insurance claims, work compensation, healthcare costs and precious time and energy wasted in traffic congestion. The Worst Roads campaign puts a spotlight on troublesome and even dangerous road conditions with a goal to engage municipalities and other levels of government to take action and make repairs or changes. 

The Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) is a federation of nine clubs providing more than 5.8 million Members with exceptional emergency roadside service, complete automotive and travel services, Member Rewards and comprehensive insurance services. CAA also advocates on issues of concern to its Members, including road safety, the environment, mobility, infrastructure and consumer protection.
