City drivers spend 34 hours a year stuck in traffic
Commutes are hellish.
Sure, you’re headed home after a long day of work, but you’re stuck in traffic wondering 1) why no one knows how to drive, and b) why your city’s civil engineers are such morons for designing these impenetrable roadways.
By the time you finally get home you need three drinks to unwind.
It’s especially bad for people who live in Washington, D.C., Chicago, Los Angeles, Houston, and New York—the five most congested U.S. cities by commute time.
On average, urban commuters spend 34 hours a year in the car.
This infographic from Nationwide explains more about traffic, none of which will shorten your commute—unless the numbers inspire you to start taking the train or riding your bike.
