Bad Roads Campaign Generating Lots Of Calls

The bad roads campaign launched a while back by the Canadian Union of Public Employees has generated over 700 calls from drivers this winter which has been a stormy one since mid December. 

The President of CUPE local 1190 Andy Hardy tells CHSJ News people can call a toll free number if their roads have not been plowed so they're safe to drive on. Hardy says you can't have the plows going 24/7 unless you have spare operators.

Hardy says the roads being mentioned are being passed along to the Transportation Department so they can be checked. 

That toll free number is 1888-TRIP-198 or 1-888-874-7198.

Hardy says the calls have been coming in from all over the province, not one specific area.
