CAA Saskatchewan launches annual Worst Roads campaign

The CAA Worst Roads campaign invites Saskatchewan motorists to nominate and vote for the worst roads they have travelled on. Worst roads include those with potholes, cracks, general disrepair, poor signage, congestion, and roads that are too narrow for motorists, pedestrians and cyclists to share safely.

Here’s how to nominate and vote for your worst road:

  1. Click https://caaworstroads.com/clubs/saskatchewan/vote/
  2. Select a road - municipal or provincial - and a specific segment or section
  3. Identify what type of road user you are – motorist, cyclist, motorcyclist, or pedestrian and select the ‘problem’ from the provided drop-down menu
  4. Vote - one vote per road per email every 24 hours

The 2020 campaign was cancelled due to Covid; the 2019 top 10 worst roads included 6 from Regina.
