When you look at the numbers, it is shocking how much time we spend in our beloved vehicles. Americans are in their cars on average 48 minutes per day and 38 hours per year stuck in traffic. If you were to calculate this it would lead to approximately 300 hours per year, or almost 13 days just behind the wheel. And this is merely the average. Some people spend a lot more time than this in their car. According to statistics, nearly 128 million Americans commute to work with approximately 75% of them driving alone.
