the world's most spectacular roads

Whether it is potholes, traffic congestion, or deteriorated pavement, many of Canada’s highways are in serious need of improvement.

The following is a list of headlines about the top 15 most dangerous highways in Canada:

1) A 50-kilometre stretch of Highway 11, between Lac du Bonnet and Traverse Bay in eastern Manitoba, could be considered the province’s most dangerous highway, “[It had] five fatal collisions last year, which is a very high number for such a short stretch of highway”.

2) Highway 103 along the South Shore of Nova Scotia has had 10 people die last year. According to the provincial Department of Transportation, 29 people have been killed in crashes on Highway 103 since 2006.

3) The six-kilometer stretch of Trans Canada Highway in Headingley is an extremely busy highway, averaging 18,000 vehicles daily. It is also one of the few remaining stretches of undivided highway in Manitoba, and it has seen more than 100 accidents in recent years, some of them fatal.

4) Over the past five years, on highway 63 in Alberta, 22 people have died and more than 250 have been injured on the 400-kilometre stretch of narrow two-lane blacktop. Traffic on the highway has increased by more than 30 per cent during that time.

5) A succession of horrendous traffic accidents has marred the stretch of single-lane park highway between Banff and the British Columbia boundary. Bill Fisher, director general for Parks Canada’s western and northern region, said the already twinned sections have provided “significant reductions in wildlife mortality.”

6) You have a greater chance of being involved in a car accident if you are driving on Highway 401 between Whites Rd. in Pickering and Courtice Rd. east of Oshawa than any other highway location in the province, according to Ontario Provincial Police data obtained by the Toronto Star.

7) The RCMP state: “The Trans-Canada Highway in British Columbia’s Trans-Canada Highway, stretching from Sicamous to Rogers Pass, remains an area of concern with respect to commercial vehicles involved fatal collisions.

The section of the Trans-Canada Highway (HWY 1) running through Yoho National Park to Golden, British Columbia, now carries over 10,000 vehicles per day during the summer season. Collisions between wildlife and vehicles result in the loss of wildlife, vehicle damage, and, occasionally, human injuries or fatalities.

9)The stretch of Highway 11 between Saskatoon and Prince Albert has long been one of the most dangerous in the province. Between 2003 and 2007, there were 883 collisions, 308 persons injured and 17 people killed.

10) Located in Canada’s Northwest Territories, the road from Tibbitt to Contwoyto is considered one of the most dangerous routes in the world. The main danger is that 85 percent of the road lies over frozen lakes, so ice can break at anytime and swallow the trucks.

11) Kicking Horse Canyon is one of the most dangerous stretches of road in the country and a key connector between the Prairies and the West Coast. 21 people lost their lives in 700 accidents on the stretch of winding road between 1996 and 2001. Close to 400 people were injured in the canyon from 1991 to 2000.

12) CAA lists Highway 40 in Quebec as one of Canada’s worst highways. Deterioration has resulted in sections of the road collapsing making it a very dangerous drive.

The Canadian Automobile Association says Canada’s highways are falling to pieces. They are now demanding that the Government repair the roads so more drivers are not injured or killed. When planning a long car drive, it is important to be aware of any hazardous highway conditions. It will help keep you and your loved ones safe.

The only way to avoid being scammed is simply observing and exercising caution when you choose to date online.
So many people are timid about giving away their private numbers that before you ask, you need
to be assured that you have established a strong level of trust
and perceived intimacy. It gave the silent kid in the back of the class an opportunity to have a respected identity among others who might feel the same
