In CAA Ontario Worst Roads survey in 2008, the City of Toronto was only mentioned three (3) times (out of the top 20) and has managed to increase that number to nine (9) spots out of the top 20 in the 2009 survey. Steeles Avenue, is still maintaining the number one (1) position, as it was last year as well.  Lawrence Avenue was in 13th place in 2008 and has managed to take the 9th position in 2009.

It is the driver’s on Ontario’s highways, roads, streets, avenues and drives that have weighed in on this question and have given the government something to consider, when it comes to road repair and resource prioritization.

It's only fair to share...
