CAA launches annual Worst Roads campaign

New Brunswick roads hold eight of the top ten spots as CAA's annual "Worst Roads" campaign has launched for the seventh year in a row.

Gary Howard, Vice President of Communications at CAA Atlantic, says the purpose of the campaign is to highlight the number of dangerous road conditions in the region.

Every road in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador is eligible and voting runs until April 18th.

As of this morning, the only road in Nova Scotia to crack the top 10 was Fraxville Road in New Ross.

Louisville Road in River John finished third in last year's campaign.

CAA says its research indicates that by the time you add up the costs of traffic congestion, repair costs, taxes, and various other costs, a bad road could cost the average motorist up to $3,000 each year.
