Ontario's Worst Roads... Revealed

Thank you for voting in this year's CAA Worst Roads campaign. The results are now in... scroll down to discover where Ontario's Worst Roads are!

The annual campaign is a platform for Ontarians 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.

Votes submitted are compiled and released as a provincial Top 10 list along with a regional list - all designed to spark a dialogue with governments and to help pave the way for safer roads across Canada.

Whether you roll on two wheels or four, run, walk or rollerblade, road safety impacts everyone. Cyclists, pedestrians and motorists – we all have a role to play in making roads safer. After all, potholes, cracks, crumbling shoulders and poor road maintenance cost Canadians $3 billion every year... and that’s just for vehicle owners!

Check out the Top 10 Worst Roads in Ontario and North & East Ontario, below!
