Spring is just ‘round the corner and so is the Worst Roads Campaign, sponsored by CAA Saskatchewan. Starting March 25th, 2013, Saskatchewan motorists are invited to vote on the worst road – for potholes, cracks, or just general disrepair, or poor signage, congestion, etc. – that they’ve recently travelled on in the province. This also includes roads that are too narrow for motorists, pedestrians and cyclists to share safely.
CAA Saskatchewan has teamed up with CAA clubs in Manitoba, the Atlantic region and Ontario in a joint effort to advocate for better roads. From March 25th to April 20th, 2013, motorists are invited to vote on the worst road at www.caask.ca/worstroads.
The campaign will be monitored during the four-week period. Updated information on which roads in our province are getting the top votes will be available via news releases, website, and social media including Facebook and Twitter. As per last year’s Worst Roads Campaign, the top 10 roads will be shared with the appropriate government body.
CAA Saskatchewan acknowledges the improvements made to Saskatchewan roadways for the safety of all residents and travelers. But there is still work to be done and who better to help identify roads in need of repair than Saskatchewan motorists who rely on them every day for work, leisure and family travel.
During the 2012 Worst Roads Campaign, around 2,900 votes were cast with Highway 22 near Earl Grey receiving the most votes. A complete list of last year’s top 10 worst roads is also available at www.caask.ca/worstroads.
Working towards better roads and driving safety is a priority for CAA Saskatchewan. The Worst Roads Campaign helps to put a spotlight on troublesome and even dangerous road conditions in the province and is one tool to help address those roads in most need of attention.
