Bad Roads In Canada? It Could Be Much Worse

The CBC recently ran a story saying that the city of Toronto had some of the worst roads in the province.

According to the article "Toronto nabs 5 of 10 spots in worst roads survey" (based on research from the Canadian Automobile Association (CAA)), Canada's largest city isn't very friendly to cars. The report singled out Dufferin Street in particular.

It isn't the first time Canadian roads have been called out for being congested or in poor condition. Dave Pankew of Autoblog Canada recently wrote an article called "The Top 5 Worst Roads, Bridges And Tunnels In Canada."

The CAA has long expressed frustration with the condition of several of Canada's roads, and said in a press release that Canadian motorists were unhappy with the situation.

But maybe we shouldn't be so quick to complain. Most seasoned travellers have at least one good "road trip from hell" story. And while some of Canada's streets and highways do have some rough edges, there are roads out there that will leave you holding your breath and clutching your seatbelt in terror.
