Study finds drivers spend four years behind wheel and eight months in jams
- A study found the typical motorist will clock up 592,20 in their lifetime – which equates to the same distance as getting to the moon and back
Drivers spend nearly four years of their lives behind the wheel, eight months in jams and eight weeks looking for parking spaces.
A study found the typical motorist will clock up 592,920 miles in their lifetime, which equates to 810 miles a month or 9,720 miles a year.
It’s the same distance as getting to the moon and back or round the Earth 24 times. Of their 3.7 years in the driver’s seat, 8,000 hours are spent on motorways and nearly 9,000 slogging through congested cities.
Every motorist will suffer at least one accident. And the study by webuyanycar.com revealed that 23% of motorists had written a car off in the past.
Parents will be asked “Are we nearly there yet?” as many as 60 times a year.
Fifteen days of our lives are wasted driving lost or in the wrong direction while we spend 10 months singing behind the wheel.
