A road is qualified for the survey if it is in general disrepair with potholes or cracks, has poor signage or congestion or is too narrow for motorists, pedestrians and cyclists to share safely.

“The purpose of the campaign is to spotlight troublesome and even dangerous road conditions in the province and to address those roads in most need of attention with government authorities,” said Christine Niemczyk, director of corporate communication with CAA Saskatchewan.

This list will be shared with the provincial government.

The worst roads in Saskatchewan:

1. Highway 123 near Cumberland House
2. Highway 42 near Dinsmore
3. Highway 908 near Ile a la Crosse
4. Highway 22 near Earl Grey
