CAA Niagara’s worst roads campaign is back after being put on pause last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The initiative offers Niagara residents the opportunity to highlight road infrastructure and safety issues in their communities.
“Worst Roads is known for addressing potholes,” said CAA Niagara’s President and CEO, Peter Van Hezewyk, “but there are other important road safety issues we also want to talk about.
“Regardless of whether you’re in a vehicle, riding a bike or on foot, road safety impacts everyone. Poorly timed traffic lights, dangerous intersections, the absence of bike lanes or sidewalks in areas that have high cycling and pedestrian traffic – these are all issues that we want to address during the Worst Roads campaign.”
This year’s campaign will run until April 18, 2021. Votes can be submitted online at www.caaworstroads.com, however, residents are also encouraged to join in the conversation on CAA Niagara’s Facebook and Instagram pages.
In 2019, more than 1,500 Niagara citizens cast their votes, with McLeod Road in Niagara Falls, Drummond Road in Niagara Falls, St. David’s Road in Thorold, Portage Road in Niagara Falls, and Sider Road in Fort Erie being named Niagara’s top 5 Worst Roads that year.
