Why does Ontario have a limited supply of major highways. With the largest population, it still has less highways per capita, than any western or eastern provinces. So, why is that? AutoLooks is here to let you in on a little secret which our government doesn't want you to know about. And your safety is on the line because of it.
Ontario may be the largest province by population, but in no way does that mean it is better than the rest of the country. Even though more than 25% of Canada's population resides within its boarders, this province is still lacking when it comes to highway infrastructure. Sure, we do have one the best public infrastructure systems in the country, but moving product has always been a problem.
Ever since the introduction of the 400 series highways during the 1950's, Ontario has been lagging in how to expand these highway routes. During the early days, these highways became the backbone of our economy, but over the next few decades, they have not expanded to meet the growing demands of the world around them.
Today our highway network is overutilized to a point where gridlock strangles our economy everyday. But with a government mindset which outlines that only an overall percentage warrants expansion, our highways continue to suffer. Only expanding when a continued high percentage of mobility is used, means out highways will never meet the demands laid out by our government.
With a mindset fixated on an overall and not taking into consideration only peak times, means our highways are going to be stuck in gridlock for decades to come. And with no intervention from our police force or business community, this mindset will never change. It seems that if we want things to change, we will have to fight for what is required and that is what AutoLooks is here to help with.
So, come with us as we take a look at how backwards thinking our government is compared to the rest of the country, as we dive deep into our infrastructure deficit.
