With our hectic schedules and time spent in our vehicle to transition from one place to the next, we are definitely trying to manage our time. So how much time do we Americans spend in our cars? We spend 17,600 minutes inside our vehicle a year. This means that we do a lot more than just drive.
Well, let’s take a look at those 17,600 minutes a year, let's break it down even further.
The average American spends 101 minutes per day in their car. That means that we spend 37,935 hours driving a car (assuming that s/he starts driving at 17 and drives until 78.7 years old.)
How many hours per year do we sit in traffic?
Of course, the number of hours spent sitting in traffic will depend on where you live, but on average we spend 38 hours sitting in traffic within our lifetime.
That sounds like a lot of time in our vehicles...so let me ask you, are you happy with the vehicle you spend this much time with? I hope so, but if you would like to change your surroundings, give me a call!
