Canada has a lot to be proud of but roads aren’t one of them, it appears.

A new study by online driver education agency Zutobi places Canada among the top 20 countries with the worst roads in the world.

Zutobi analyzed road quality, road fatalities, and the relative size of the road network among 59 countries. According to their findings, Canada has the 19th worst quality roads in the world.

Road quality in Canada has decreased more than 6% in the last five years, study shows. On top of that, there have been 4.58 road traffic fatalities per 100,000 on Canadian highways.
