Cast your vote in BCAA's campaign to find B.C’s 'Worst Road'
Do you face potholes, traffic congestion or unsafe roads each day? If you travel on what you think is the worst road in B.C. we want to hear about it. Until April 23, you’re invited to "vote" for the road in your community or on your commute that you feel is the 'worst' in the province.
This survey is open to all British Columbians. Nominate your "worst road" now.
Whether you're a motorist, cyclist or pedestrian, roads that are deteriorating, inadequately maintained or poorly designed affect your pocketbook, stress level and personal safety. Vote for your "worst road" now, and draw some attention to rough, unsafe or inefficient roads in your community.
After voting closes, BCAA will share detailed results with municipalities and the provincial Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure to ensure they are aware of road users’ concerns, and to find out how they are planning to improve B.C.'s problem roads and highways.
Throughout the campaign, you can check the website bcaa.com/worstroads to see where your road ranks and which roads are close to taking the title of 'B.C.'s Worst Road'. Once final results are tallied, a list of the Top 20 "Worst Roads" in B.C. will be published.
While this is BCAA’s second year to conduct this campaign, similar surveys conducted by CAA affiliates in other provinces have shown that strong voices can make a difference. In Ontario, for example, over 90 percent of the roads that achieved Top 20 "Worst Road" status in previous years have either been fixed, or are in the process of being fixed.
The BCAA "Worst Roads" survey defines a 'worst road' as any piece of paved infrastructure—including a bridge or tunnel—that exhibits the following characteristics:
- has damaging potholes
- needs resurfacing
- is unsafe and contributes to frequent accidents
- is often heavily congested
- has inadequate road markings or signs
- is poorly designed for motorists, pedestrians and cyclists to share safely
