Every year the Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) asks drivers, cyclists and transit riders to identify the roads they think are in most need of improvement. The CAA publishes the results of its Worst Roads campaign annually. So, what makes a “worst road”? On one hand, it could be a number of potholes, uneven or crumbling pavement, congestion and confusing signage. On the other hand, it also could be poorly coordinated traffic lights, and roadways that pose significant risk to pedestrians and cyclists.
CAA released the results of the 2016 Worst Campaign on May 2016, during a press conference at Evergreen Brickworks. Raymond Chan, Government Relations Specialist for CAA South Central Ontario, notes “it’s clear from the response that improved infrastructure and reduced congestion matters to motorists, pedestrians, cyclists and transit riders.”

CAA’s Worst Road campaign provides transportation companies with critical information. Especially, regarding to efficient operation of our shuttle services across Toronto. On a daily basis Mulmer Services utilizes Global Positioning System (GPS) software that relays information on local traffic conditions, road closures, accidents, and construction on Toronto streets. Moreover, we monitor GPS software on a frequent basis to ensure our drivers are using the safest, most efficient, and most comfortable roadways to deliver passengers to their destinations. Further, Mulmer Services’ comprehensive training program centers on teaching driving techniques that make for the most comfortable ride on roadways wrought with potholes and poor infrastructure.
