What’s that one road that you always dread driving, cycling or walking down?
An informal survey conducted by CTV Kitchener found a few contenders in Waterloo Region, including Victoria Street, University Avenue, and the area around Caroline and Erb streets.
Whether it’s those roads or other ones, CAA wants to hear about which roads leave you fuming.
The organization is in the midst of its annual Worst Roads campaign. Streets anywhere in Ontario can be nominated on CAA’s website up until May 1.
On Thursday, Raymond Chan of CAA South Central Ontario was in Waterloo Region to drum up interest in the campaign.
“We want to provide a voice for local residents to provide some input on some issues relating to transportation matters that may be some pain points or frustrations for them on a daily basis,” he said in an interview.
According to Chan, potholes and “crumbling pavement” are the most common issues leading to a road being reported to CAA, but anything from confusing signage to poor cycling infrastructure can make a street eligible for consideration.
A CAA-sponsored study found that 69 per cent of respondents said they had some sort of infrastructure or congestion issue with their daily commute.
