A survey completed by CAA Quebec between April 12 and May 8 of this year revealed what the 10 worst roads in the province are. After receving responses from 5,800 road users, the results are in (and surprisingly enough, none are located in Montreal!) Here is the official list of the most poorly maintained, pothole-filled roads in the province :
- Georges Street- Gatineau, Outaouais

It's safe to say that the report doesn't look to good for Gatineau. Even though Montreal did not make the list (we know, we can't believe it either!), it's not exactly smooth sailing when it comes to driving here. The 5 worst roads in Montreal have been revealed to be:
- Notre-Dame Street East
- Acadie Boulevard
- Christophe-Colomb Avenue
- Cote-de-Liesse Road
- Saint-Laurent Boulevard
"I use Notre Dame every day, and it's pretty terrible," said David Marcille, CAA spokesperson, in an interview. "Lots of big trucks, lots of potholes, so I really hope they fix it soon."
In your opinion, which road is the worst in Montreal?
