6 out of 10 of the worst roads are in the GTA and Hamilton
CAA says you still have time to nominate a road you think is the worst
2 0

There's a good chance that if you've been out on the roads in the GTA in your car, you probably drove on one of the worst roads in the province.

The CAA gave us a hint as to which roads were on this years Worst Roads list and 6 out of the top 10 are from the GTA or Hamilton.

You still have a couple days to nominate the road you think is the worst, with voting set to close on Friday.

Faye Lyons with CAA says a worst road isn't just a bumpy one. She says they've since expanded their criteria to include roads that are congested, or ones with lights or signage, that make for a dangerous situation.

Lyons adds that once all the votes are in, they actually go and check to make sure the road is bad before compiling the official list.

That will be published at the end of May.

    The real problem is not the bad roads. BAD DRIVERS!!! The drivers in those areas 80% are very bad drivers. They are always in a rush they always want to overtake and they are not respecting to the drivers who is driving according to the Highway rules and regulations. That s the main problem here.Drivers doesn't have discipline. Around 80% of stupid drivers out there. There are some very nice drivers out there too. But they cannot do anything. This is going to be a very big problem in future. IF EVERYONE DRIVING ACCORDING TO THE HIGHWAY RULES AND REGULATIONS,
    i DON'T THINK THERE'S NO MORE ACCIDENTS.

      @SEAN And what do your dumb comments have to do with potholes?

      The issue is that since Rob Ford got elected and began to slash budgets Toronto has become a dirty, smelly, unsafe city where many roads cause real damage to cars and put cyclists at risk. We were once proud of being the cleanest and safest city in North America, but those days are long gone.

      Thank Mayor Ford for cutting back on spending on where it really matters.
