CAA Saskatchewan accumulating nominations for ten worst roads

Even though you might not physically see them under the snow and ice – you know they’re lurking there – the worst roads and highways in Saskatchewan.
CAA Saskatchewan is holding their annual Top Ten Worst Roads campaign, and they want your votes.
Christine Niemczyk with CAA Saskatchewan explains why they do this.
“Primarily CAA is involved because we’re a strong advocate for safety for all road users,” said Niemczyk. “That includes motorcyclists, pedestrians, drivers, transit users… any of those people that use the roads, we want to hear from them.”
Roads here in Saskatchewan are a vital link between neighbourhoods and communities.
Sometimes, these roads become crumbling, undulating, and unsafe.
“The purpose of the campaign is to bring these roads to the attention of the municipalities and provincial governments, to theie top of mind, to say ‘Here’s the worst roads, let’s talk about it, let’s do something about it.’”
People can go to CAASK.CA/worstroads to nominate or vote. Nominations from members and non-CAA members are welcome.
New for this year’s campaign is CAA’s Angel Blair talking to Kim Onrait, the executive director of citizen’s services with the city of Regina, talking about the three Regina roads that made their top 10 in 2022 – Mayfair Crescent, Grant Drive Ingersoll Crescent.
Thursday, an interview with Shantel Lipp of the Saskatchewan Heavy Construction Association will talk about the upcoming construction season and why they support the worst roads campaign.
CAA Saskatchewan said road users can vote for more than one type of worst, unsafe roads from now until April 25th.
And it doesn’t matter if the road is a well-travelled highway or a lesser-used RM road.
“A worse road is an unsafe road no matter where you live in Saskatchewan,” Niemczyk said. “And you know what? We’ve even had pasture roads in previous campaigns that have made our top ten list.”
The final top ten will be announced April 26.
