    This site is run by a group of organizations to advocate for appropriate investments in municipal road maintenance and improvements. Motorists can vote on their choice for Ontario’s worst road. In 2004, Ottawa’s Limebank Road was chosen as Ottawa’s worst. Bronson had the dubious honours in 2003. “[Bronson is an example] of our pagan society with our sacrifices of human blood to the ‘God of the Road’,” wrote one visitor. Other perennial winners include Hunt Club Road, Highway 174 and Carling Avenue.
