Tiring … We spend TWO YEARS of our lives in cars – where commuting takes up most of the time
- Figures suggest that drivers drive to work 63 hours a year in the car
- We spend a total of 12 days each year in our cars while driving through the UK
- Despite the large amount of time, many drivers enjoy the time spent in their cars
It is news that parents ask: is that all? For a study into driving habits, they claim to take their children to social events on average 13 hours a year.
The figure comes from research for an insurance company that also believes that Britons spend a total of more than two years of their lives in cars.
Every year, motorists spend a total of 33 hours to and from the supermarket and 35 hours of driving to meet friends and family – in addition to the 13 hours spent as the "mom and dad" taxi.
Anger on the road: motorists spend more than three weeks of their lives shouting and swearing at other drivers
We spent almost three days almost every year commuting to and from work in our car
Above all, however, the 63 hours per year is just commuting to and from work in the car.
It is not all bad. For many people the car is a sanctuary. The Privilege Car Insurance survey shows that almost six out of ten (59 percent) drivers agree that driving is a good opportunity to think, and more than half (52 percent) are happy to stop for a while Phones.
A third (33 percent) agree that time alone in the car offers them a welcome change from their children.
On average, British motorists spend 293 hours a year in their cars. Instead of finding it quite a job, almost nine out of ten (86 percent) enjoy the radio, while two-thirds of drivers (67 percent) admit that they sing along best.
However, motorists also spend three and a half weeks of their lives shouting or swearing at other road users, and a painful five weeks looking for a parking space.
