The majority of people working in the U.S. have an average daily commute of 16 miles. That's about 26 minutes one way 52 minutes total after the return trip. That means in an average week people drive roughly 160 miles and spend about 260 minutes traveling.
If you're figuring for a 52 week calendar year that's over 225 hours spent commuting. That's 13,500 minutes behind the wheel you'll never get back. Do you know how many episodes of Seinfeld that is?
That's a lot of time on the road and miles covered and that only accounts for the average commuter. Some people travel much further maybe coming from a far out community. Some people living in larger cities like Los Angeles or Chicago can experience even longer commute times due to excessive traffic.
At any rate, we spend a lot of time in our vehicles and for reasons of comfort, fuel economy and over all safety it's not far fetched that commuters would want to search for safe used cars for commuters.

A Word to Fellow Commuters

There's not a whole lot you can do when you have to travel for work. I enjoy listening to satellite radio and catching up on podcasts, but the grind is a grind. I can tell you this, you're not alone. There are many a weary, blurry eyed coffee drinking daily commuters driving along with you. If you have to drive far be safe.
AND KNOCK OFF THE TEXTING WHILE DRIVING WOULD YOU? Happy and safe motoring everyone.
