CAA resumes Worst Roads campaign
By Derek Winkler
The Canadian Automobile Association of South Central Ontario has begun its 20th annual “Worst Roads” campaign. The advocacy campaign is intended to raise awareness of road repair in the province. It allows Ontario residents to vote for roads that they think need urgent repair at <http://www.caaworstroads.com>.
“Our research tells us that 85% of Ontarians are concerned about the state of our roads,” said Teresa Di Felice, assistant vice-president of government and community relations at the association. “Due to inflation, consumers are being more mindful of their purchases, and people are opting to hold on to their cars for longer instead of buying a new one. Funding for roadway improvements and proper infrastructure needs to be consistent to ensure that quality and safety are maintained. The campaign has demonstrated that decision-makers are paying attention to the results, which has prompted municipal officials to move up infrastructure projects in their communities.”
