It's spring, which in Quebec means, of course, potholes. Ice that formed beneath roads during the winter has melted away, leaving cracks and craters in once smooth pavement.\nThough municipalities scramble each year to repair damage on major thoroughfares, other roads are long neglected.\nThat unfortunate truth has prompted the Canadian Automobile Association in Quebec (CAA) to open a survery where residents can vote for "the worst roads" in the province in 2019.\nAccording to Narcity Québec, this is in fact the 5th year the CAA has held the contest.\nALSO READ: The SQDC Is Raising The Price Of Marijuana In Quebec\nTL;DR Returning for a 5th year, the Canadian Automobile Association's "Worst Roads in Quebec" contest is open between April 24th and May 31st, 2019.\nAlready, votes have begun to coalesce around a few streets. The top 5 so far include:\nChemin Traverse de Laval – Lac-Beauport, Québec\n\n\nBoulevard Gouin Est – Montréal, Québec\n\n\nBoulevard de la Salette – Saint-Jérôme, Québec\n\n\nChemin Kilmar – Grenville-sur-la-Rouge, Québec\n\n\nQuébec 116 – Warwick, Québec\nThe CAA inaugurated the hashtag #PiresRoutes on Twitter to promote the contest.\nThe winner of the contest will receive the coveted award known as the "Golden Pothole."\nView this post on Instagram Quelle horreur! 😱Laquelle de ces #piresroutes mérite le prix « Nid d’Autruche »? 1.

With all this visibility, they will have a good chance of winning their repair," the CAA states pointedly on its website.\nView this post on Instagram La rue Shefford a l'entrée de Bromont à tout ce qu'il faut pour apparaître au palmarès des Pires Routes!
