Some of you may not find this surprising but a new study confirms what Quebec has the worst roads in Canada.
It’s an embarrassing report for the province, which has spent billions of dollars trying to improve the infrastructure for decades. And worse, we are paying through our wallets for them.
Not only does Quebec boast the worst roads in the country but we are paying a heavy price due to the bad work.
According to CAA, it costs every driver about an average of $258 per year to maintain your vehicle due to the poor quality of the roads. That puts Quebec drivers at more than double the Canadian average of $126 per year.
“The numbers that we put out this morning are confirming the myth that Quebec roads were worse than everywhere else. And that’s what the numbers say,” CAA spokesperson Nicolas Ryan told CTV Montreal.
“And it’s not just a bit worse, we’re actually twice over the average of Canada and it’s concerning.”
Here is a breakdown of the average annual cost of poor roads per vehicle across Canada:
Nova Scotia: $137
Newfoundland and Labrador: $125
British Columbia: $85
New Brunswick: $80
