Sep. 14th, 2005 @ 08:26 pm Vote for the worst Ontario roads
One thing we have here in Ontario is roads, miles and miles of roads (sorry but kilometers just doesn't flow as well). With so many roads, one or two are bound to be forgotten for say, 10 or 15 years. I mean, really, who cares if they are part of that two-lane travesty we call the Trans-Canada Highway, part of that god-forsaken 17 hour drive to get out of this province?

Adding to the delightful road system are the Canadian Shield, permafrost, and 9 months of winter. If the roads aren't forgotten, they are chewed up by frost, heaving and way too many cars every day (Carling Avenue in Ottawa comes to mind). But now is the season to embrace these roads, to celebrate their sorry state!

Go, vote, show your love for your locally neglected road system - www.worstroads.ca.

That will be a good reference page for when we drive from Chicago-Toronto-Niagara-Montreal-backagain next year!

Whew - that's quite the drive. What are you doing up this way?

Just vacationing -- maybe looking for asylum if the US is bankrupt by then.

I don't like the collecter's lanes, but I guess that doesn't count. (I'm for the US, so we don't have those where I am from)

They used to confuse the heck out of me - I'd see a sign for the street I wanted in the collector lane and try to get over, only to realize they were telling the collectors to merge in.

I'm much better now - and really they are 3 extra lanes of roomy goodness.

When I first drove there, I was so confused on when and where I should merge! Now I just get driven around ;)
