Ottawa, ON — CAA South Central Ontario (CAA SCO) and MediaMiser have partnered on an infographic outlining Ontario’s Worst Roads for 2014, which saw Toronto’s Dufferin Street voted the province’s worst thoroughfare for the third straight year.
This year’s Worst Roads campaign, which saw the nominations of more than 2,000 roads across Ontario, saw a 31-per-cent increase in entries in 2014. That didn’t prevent Dufferin Street from being voted the province’s worst road once again, ahead of Niagara Falls’ Stanley Avenue and Toronto’s Kipling Avenue.
According to the CAA SCO, of roads on this year’s Top 10 list, 90-per-cent of voters complained about crumbling pavement and pothole-ridden streets as reasons for selecting the road.
