After taking a one-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Canadian Automobile Association‘s (CAA) worst roads campaign has returned.

The 2021 edition launched Tuesday to highlight which road improvement projects are most needed.

“The campaign is a platform for all road users to highlight which roadway improvements should be prioritized by our different levels of government,” said Raymond Chan, government relations manager for CAA in South Central Ontario. “The campaign gives decision-makers a snapshot of what roads the public perceives are not meeting their expectations.”

Chan says governments should continue to take advantage of lighter traffic patterns during the pandemic as an opportunity to make road repairs.
