BCAA has released their list of B.C.’s top ten worst roads after receiving three times as many votes this year.
1,227 different stretches of road around the province were nominated for being unsafe or hard to navigate.
BCAA also says that complaints about traffic congestion increased significantly this year in the Lower Mainland and on Vancouver Island.
The top three worst roads are all in the Okanagan, followed by roads on the Lower Mainland and the Island.

- #2: Westside Rd., 40 km north of West Kelowna (potholes/pavement)

Highlights of the survey include:
- 24% cite traffic congestion as issue (up from 14% in 2013)
- Votes about potholes decreasing over past few years
- Westside Road appears three times this year
BCAA says the survey is not about criticizing government, but to draw attention to roads that need improvement. View the full list at www.bcaa.com/worstroads
